CFD Analysis of Spirally Coiled Heat Exchanger

Authors(3) :-Manoj Kumar, Vishal Gupta, Samarjeet Bagri

Flow parameters such as pressure drop, temperature variation, heat transfer rate have been found out for spirally coiled heat exchanger. Fluid entering the heat exchanger is consideing at 293K and wall is assumed to be at 320K. Mass flow rate has been varied from 0.06Kg/s, 0.08 Kg/s and 0.10 Kg/s & the diameter of coil has been considered as 6mm, 8.025mm & 10mm. Standard . k-Eturbulence model has been considered for handling turbulence. Reynolds number, Euler number, temperature variation, pressure drop and heat transfer rate have been found out & compared for all the cases.
