Experimental Performance Studies of a Plate Heat Exchanger
A plate and frame heat exchanger experimental test stand was developed. Using this test stand a performance analysis was conducted. The analysis consisted of evaluating the performance of the heat exchanger at varying flow rates and inlet temperatures, to develop an effectiveness-NTU and Log Mean Temperature Difference relationships, under steady state operation. The measured heat rates were compared to the heat rates provided by the manufacturer and good/bad agreement was found. Standard operating procedures for the test stand were developed and implemented.
Heat Exchanger Performance Ranking
Traditionally data for plate-finned surfaces have been presented in terms of heat transfer coefficients and friction factors referred to the exposed area, as a function of Reynolds number based on the minimum free flow area. This method of data presentation does not permit comparison of surfaces in any simple manner. Soland proposed a method of surface comparison where heat transfer coefficient and friction factor is referred to the base area and Reynolds number is based on open flow area, as though the fins were not present.
Heat Exchanger Optimization
A computer code was developed for the analysis of aircooled heat exchangers and was coupled with a constrained function minimization code to produce an automated air-cooled heat exchanger design and optimization program with many new capabilities. A general iteration free approximation method was used for the analysis which calculates the mean overall heat transfer coefficient and the overall pressure drop for many flow arrangements, taking into account the variation of the heat transfer coefficients and the pressure drop with temperature and/or length of flow path.
Thermal Conductivity of Refractory Materials
The study of thermal conductivity of refractory materials continues to remain important even today. This is so, because, generally speaking, the investigations carried out so far applied only to particular cases and were marked by limitation of techniques and by the small number of systematic determinations.
Heat and Thermodynamics
When the first edition of "Heat and Thermodynamics" appeared thirty years ago, it was intended for students preparing for careers in physics, in chemistry, and in all branches of engineering. It was designed for sophomores, or at most juniors, and was meant to be a first introduction to the principles and subject matter of thermodynamics.
Thermodynamic Applications
Earlier editions of “ Thermodynamics” by the late Professor J. E. Emswiler of the University of Michigan were received with such general approval it seemed unadvisable not to offer a new edition with some additions and revision necessitated by recent developments in the presentation of the subject.
Treatise on Thermodynamics Dr. Max Planck
The oft-repeated requests either to publish my collected papers on Thermodynamics, or to work them up into a comprehensive treatise, first suggested the writing of this book.
