Example 11.1
A counterflow, concentric tube heat exchanger is used to cool
the lubricating oil for a large industrial gas turbine engine. The
flow of cooling water through the inner tube (D
i
=25 mm) is 0.2
kg/s, while the flow rate of oil through the outer annulus (D
o
=45
mm) is 0.1 kg/s. The oil and water enter a temperatures of 100
and 30 C, respectively. How long must the tube be made if the
outlet temperature of the oil is to be 60 C?
Example 11.1
Known: Fluid flow rates and inlet T for counterflow, concentric
tube heat exchanger of prescribed inner and outer diameter

Example 11.2
A shell-and-tube heat exchanger must be designed to heat 2.5 kg/s of water
from 15C to 85 C. The heating is to be accomplished by passing hot engine
oil, which is available at 160 C, through the shell side of the exchanger. The
oil is known to provide an average convection coefficient h
o
=400 W/m

the outside of the tubes. Ten tubes pass the water through the shell. Each tube
is thin walled, of diameter of D=25mm, and makes eight passes through the
shell. If the oil leaves the exchanger at 100 C, what is its flow rate? How long
must the tubes be to accomplish the desired heating?

exchanger with 10 tubes making eight passes
