O2 Vibration of Tube Bundles in Heat Exchangers

Abstract

Flow-induced vibrations are examined for tube bundles with gas, liquid, or gas–liquid mixture cross-flows. The effect of the axial flow or the flow inside the tubes is generally negligible, except in the case of tubes with a long length between the supports and small stiffness, such as thin-walled plastic tubes (of which the procedure to evaluate the vibration is given in [1]). The guidelines in the Sect. 5 deal with the design requirements for standard heat exchangers in chemical and process industries, but not, however, with the additional requirements to ensure long service lives for equipments such as those used in nuclear and conventional power plants.
