CFD Analysis of Fluid Flow in a Heat Exchanger Using ANSYS Software


The heat exchanger is necessary for heat transport and energy conservation. Because of their extensive design possibilities, ease of building, and cheap manufacturing maintenance costs, crossflow and counter-flow heat exchangers are widely used in the petroleum, petrochemical, air conditioning, food storage, and other industries. Shell and tube heat exchangers are frequently used in businesses as chiller plants to transfer waste heat from injection moulding machines to cooling water, hence increasing injection moulding machine efficiency. The heat exchanger capacity determines how waste heat from an injection moulding process is transported to cooling water. Heat exchanger optimization discovers the best heat exchanger parameter combination to maximise heat exchanger capacity. The prefix parameter (tube diameter) is employed as an input variable, while the most significant temperature difference between the shell and tube heat exchanger is used as an output parameter.
