This report presents a computer program for the preliminary design analysis of a shell-and-tube heat exchanger for use as naval gas turbine intercooler. The heat exchanger has multiple air passes on the shell-side with a single tube-side water pass. The program requires basically as inputs the geometry of the heat exchanger and the inlet flow conditions to the heat exchanger. Staggered and inline tube arrangements with or without fins are handled empirically by the program. Program outputs included the predicted effectiveness, pressure drop, and exit conditions of the heat exchanger as well as calculated overall size and weight. This report includes the analysis method and a description of the inputs and output along with a program listing and sample output cases.
