Analysis of a Screen Heat Exchanger

Heat transfer in a fluid-to-fluid screen heat exchanger is analyzed from first principles. The screens are treated as an ensemble of pin fins and an empirical heat transfer coefficient accounts for convection heat transfer at the fin surface. Pressure drop and simultaneous axial conduction in the sc...
