Rao, Ramananda R and Shrinivasa, U and Srinivasan, J (1991) Synthesis of Cost-Optimal Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchangers. In: Heat Transfer Engineering, 12 (3). 47 -55.Full text not available from this repository.
Synthesis of cost-optimal shell-and-tube heat exchangers is a difficult task since it involves a large number of parameters. An attempt is made in this article to simplify the process of choosing the parameter values that will minimize the cost of any heat exchanger satisfying a given heat duty and a particular set of constraints. The simplification is based on decoupling of the geometric and the thermal aspects of the problem. The concept of curves for cost-optimal design is introduced and is shown to simplify the synthesis process for shell-and-tube heat exchangers.
