Abstract of Talk:
Enhance Heat Transfer with Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchangers

The heat transfer objectives are focused, or on transferring large rates of energy through small surface areas with moderate DT or, for a given heat transfer rate, on reducing the size of a heat exchanger. Both objectives require higher heat fluxes and means of enhancing heat transfer. This desire to accommodate or promote high heat fluxes has been, and still is, a major driving force for the study of heat transfer. Although great strides are being made in the area of developing analytical/numerical methods for the design and analysis of various types of heat transfer surfaces, petrochemical industry is still largely relying on conventional segmental baffle, shell-and-tube heat transfer technology.

To improve confidence and to facilitate and accelerate innovation and introduction of new enhanced heat transfer technologies Koch Heat Transfer built its own Research Facility in Wichita, Kansas. This presentation reviews the needs for further development of shell-and-tube heat exchanger technology with practical examples on how the experimental data help in gaining a better understanding of enhanced heat transfer thermal designs.

About the Speaker:
Dr. Ljubicic is Director of Technology of Koch Heat Transfer Company. His background is in thermal and fluid flow engineering and his focus is on enhanced heat transfer techniques and thermal systems optimization. He has been involved in development of shell-and-tube heat exchangers, evaluation of special design features, and selection and comparison of competing concepts.

Please register no later than Monday February 16 at 5:00 PM.
