Abstract

Heat exchanger is a gear used transfer thermal energy from one medium to another. This medium can either be liquid or gas. This paper is representing the study of shell and tube heat exchanger with the literature review of several researchers. The cross sections of the tube containing geometry square, triangle influence the thermal analysis due to variations of the surface area. When the circular surface gets replaced by flat surface increases the area of contact of fluid with its boundary which in result enhances the heat transfer rate. Analysis with different geometries of the tube in shell and tube heat exchanger and by providing different orientations to the tubes. Using water both as hot and cold fluid. Comparing the analysis result of flat surface geometry with the results of circular tubes by using ANSYS software as a tool..
