The Effect of Position of Heated Rod in Tube Banks on the Heat Transfer Coefficient

  •  Ehsan Fadhil Abbas    


Heat transfer in flow across a bank of tubes is of a particular importance in the design of heat exchangers. Heat exchangers are used in numerous services and industrial applications. Experimental studies were performed, carried out in cross-flow tube banks. They contain copper heated rod and 17 Aluminum rods arranged in the form of staggered and at arrange of Reynolds number 2700 to 21530. The experimental results indicated that the location of the heated rod in the work section affects the value of heat transfer coefficient thus this value is increased when the heated rod location changes both the y and x-directions. The experimental data revealed good agreement with Zukauskas correlation in four columns.
