Title: Review of Literature on Heat Transfer Enhancement in Compact Heat Exchangers
Author(s): Stone, K.M.
Contributor(s): Vanka, S.P.
Subject(s): wavy fins heat transfer augmentation
Abstract: This paper features a broad discussion on the application of enhanced heat transfer surfaces to compact heat exchangers. The motivation for heat transfer enhancement is discussed, and the principles behind compact heat exchangers are summarized. Next, various methods for evaluating and comparing different types of heat transfer enhancement devices using ftrst and/or second law analysis are presented. Finally, the following plate-fm enhancement geometries are discussed: rectangular and triangular plain ftns, offset strip ftns, louvered fms, and vortex generators.
