LEARNING MODULE 13 EXAMPLE PROBLEM 2 Scaling Arguments in Heat Transfer – proving it with numbers For the scenario given in Example Problem 1, assume that for equal flow rates of hot and cold streams, say 500 m 3 /hr, the individual heat transfer coefficients for water are 3000W/m 2 - o C on both the shell and tube side. Now assume you double the flow rate in the cooling water stream. Let the tubes have an inside diameter of 13mm and an outside diameter of 16mm. Prove that the overall heat transfer coefficient is greater if the cooling water is placed on the inside of the tubes and the process water is placed on the outside of the tubes. SOLUTION 1. Calculate “U” for the base case at 500 m 3 /hr: i i o o o h D D h U 1 1 1 ignoring the barrier as negligible and constant for all scenarios. Then: C m W h D D h U o i i o o o 

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
