Performance of high velocity stream heat exchangers subjected to external heat transfer.

Performance des échangeurs de chaleur à flux à haute vitesse soumis à un transfert de chaleur externe.


Type d'article : Article, Article de la RIF


Performance is analyzed for kinetic energy variation in high velocity stream heat exchangers that are subjected to external heat transfer. Analytical solutions are obtained using the method of inverse operators. They are verified against the reported expressions in the appropriate limits for constant kinetic energy system as well as for perfectly insulated conditions. Kinetic energy decay in hot stream enhances performance that exceeds the conventional heat exchanger effectiveness. For kinetic-to-thermal energy ratio and dimensionless characteristic length constant each equaling unity on the hot side, the terminal effectiveness under balanced operation is 136% for counter-flow arrangement and 82% for parallel-flow in the absence of external heat load. On the contrary, decay on the cold side lowers performance. For unbalanced flow, kinetic energy change in the higher heat capacity rate fluid has a lesser impact on the effectiveness. Thermal interaction with the ambient generally has a deleterious effect on the hot stream effectiveness of the cryogenic system. However, the performance improves under certain conditions such that the rise in fluid temperature caused by kinetic energy deterioration promotes heat loss to the surroundings.
