ME 414- FLUID SYSTEMS DESIGN PROFESSOR: JOHN TOKSOY SPRING 2009 TEAM Tyler Laughlin Denis Shkurapet Ethan Sneed Matt Tolentino Tyler Turk Heat Exchanger Design
Objective To design a heat exchanger than meets the following criteria: Cools liquid from 45 C to 25 C Must be less than 7 meters in length Shell diameter is less than 2 meters Minimize weight of the tube and shell Minimize pressure drop Heat transfer ratio of 1
Design Parameters # of tubes passed Tube outer diameter Tube inner diameter Material Baffles Shell thickness Shell Material Strength factors Fluid allocation Type of flow (parallel or counter)
Analysis Use Minitab and Matlab Minitab Use to obtain the main effects plots, Pareto charts, and the response optimizer. Matlab Use to run analysis of the DOE files and to give us the outputs of total weight, calculated heat transfer, cost, and pressure drops. DOE allows us to determine the most important variables in this design.

Analysis: 2 nd Optimization Starting values of the optimization were varied with no improvement in performance.
Conclusions: Damn near perfect! Heat Transfer Coeff : 876.97 W/m2.C R-value:0.98 Number of tubes:1313 Shell Pressure Loss:335.11 Pa Tube Pressure Loss:29832.58 Pa Weight of Heat Exchanger:350.88 kg
Conclusions: Recommendations Could be further optimized if Tube Thickness was decreased Resulting in: Lower weight - decrease of 51.93 kg Lower Tube pressure loss - decrease of 6703.1 Pa No significant loss of R-value A smaller tube is not commercially available Possibly achieve greater performance at a greater price
