Studies on Performance Characteristics of Variable Area Heat Exchangers
The construction of heat exchangers using diverging-converging tubes is discussed in this paper. The enhanced performance efficiency exhibited by such a construction is highlighted by comparing its performance against that of a conventional shell and tube heat exchanger as well as a double pipe heat exchanger fitted with longitudinal fins, under the same operating conditions. It has been observed that such a construction, being called variable area exchanger, exhibits attractive performance features for successful industrial adaptation.
