Abstract/Summary This report describes a quasi 1-D code that can be used for the design and evaluation of heat exchangers operating with ideal fluid, ideal gases and real gases. For a given heat exchanger defined by heat exchanger type, a range of variables defining the geometry of the heat exchangers, selected heat transfer correlations and selected pressure drop correlation the exchanger performance is evaluated. Employing a fixed heat exchanger geometry allows the performance of a given heat exchanger to be evaluated as fluid boundary conditions (massflow, inlet temperature, inlet pressure) change in both heat transfer channels. In the first instance this allows change in heat exchanger performance for a given heat exchanger to be evaluated across a range of operating conditions. Furthermore this can be used to appropriately size a heat exchanger that is required to operate at a number of conditions.
