Fin efficiency and mechanisms of heat exchange through fins in multi-stream plate-fin heat exchangers: development and application of a rating algorithm.

Author(s) : PRASAD B. S. V.

Type of article: Article

Summary

The article describes a program used to analyse some typical heat exchangers. It was found that though transverse conduction could be present in some and absent in some passages, it tended to play an increasingly important role as fin effectiveness increased. It was found that the developed method reliably predicted heat transfer in special situations such as the presence of dummy passages, where other methods were known to fail.
