L1 Pressure Drop in Single Phase Flow

Abstract

Energy requirements for flow through a heat exchanger are related to the heat transfer coefficient α. If adequate pressure is available, high values of α, and thus small transfer areas, can be achieved. In equipment design, the capital and running costs must be weighed up against one another to determine the most economic system.
