Abstract: The performance of heat exchanger is depending on different parameter. The design of heat exchanger depends on the use, area availability, space required, and rate of heat transfer and depends on the working fluid. In order to increase the performance of heat exchanger different input parameters and boundary conditions were enhance or optimize. In order to increase the heat transfer rate different flow pattern were used. Here in this analysis it has first analyzed the heat exchanger experimentally and find out parameters on which the performance of heat exchanger is mainly depends. After analyzing experimentally it is found that the heat transfer rate is mainly depend upon the mass flow rate of fluid and flow pattern of heat exchanger. Experimental analysis is a time consuming process and also not a cost effective method. So to reduce the analysis cost, here it has developed the numerical model of heat exchanger and applies the computational fluid dynamic analysis to optimize different parameters. Here in this analysis is analyze the cross flow pattern of heat exchanger and find the effect of different mass flow rate on cross flow pattern. After analysis it is find that as the mass flow rate increases the heat transfer rate increase, but after certain limit of flow rate it degrade.
Keywords: heat exchanger, flow behavior, heat transfer, optimization methods
