Shell and tube heat exchanger are one of the major component’s in most of the process industries, these systems that are available in different sizes has various parts. The outer shell through which the hot fluid flows, the inner tube domain in which the cold fluid flows are the major assemblies of the system. Though so many literatures are available in the design of shell and tube heat exchangers still it is a wide-open opportunity for designers to keep heat transfer rate maximum with minimum pressure drop of these systems. The arrangement of tubes, number of baffles, inclination of baffles, baffle pitch, tubes pitch, and baffle cut are some of the variables based on which the hydraulic and thermal performance of these systems are rely upon. In this work, a novel approach is attempted to conduct a parametric study to understand and identify the optimal level of about pointed out variables. Computational fluid dynamics which is found to be a better alternate for cumbersome, cost and time consuming experimental methodology is utilized in this study.
