Formatted Abstract/Summary
This paper investigates the effect of tube arrangement and pitch on fluid flow through a single row bundle of bare tubes. A transient simulation is conducted to analyse flow characteristics of this problem. Velocity fields obtained from numerical simulation are validated against those obtained using particle image velocimetry (PIV) in this work. Pressure drop for the flat bundle are found to be in good agreement with available data in the literature. Apart from flat bundles, two cases of A and V frames are investigated. Compared to a flat bundle, pressure drop of a flat bundle can be considerably higher than an oblique counterpart.
