Abstract:

Theoretical laminar flow solutions for heat transfer and flow friction are of importance in the development of compact heat exchangers. Generally the higher the degree of compactness, the lower is the Reynolds number and the greater is the relevance of the theory solutions. In the report these solutions are compiled for twenty one straight ducts and four curved ducts. Some new analytical solutions are obtained by writing a general computer program for three ducts. Application of the analytical solutions to the gas turbine regenerator is discussed.
