Abstract

The vertical single-phase flow was studied on the shell side of a horizontal tube bundle. In the present study, CFX version 14.0 from ANSYS was used to predict the flow regimes in the 19 mm diameter in staggered configuration with a pitch to diameter ratio of 1.32. The simulations were undertaken to inform on how the fluid flowed within the tube passages. The results show that the tube bundle arrangement in a heat exchanger does effect to the flow separation and re-attachment points. This is consistent with other published data
