1) A tubular heat exchanger is to be designed for cooling oil from a temperature of
80° to 30 ° C by a large of stagnant water which may be assumed to remain
constant at a temperature of 20 °C. The heat transfer surface consist of 30m long
straight tube of 20 mm inside diameter. The oil (specific gravity= 2.5 kJ/kg K and
sp.gravity = 0.8) flows through the cylindrical tube with an average velocity of 50
m/s. Calculate the overall heat transfer coefficient for the oil cooler. (Ans. U=0.2987
kJ/m2-s-°C)
2) A counter flow concentric tube heat exchanger is used to cool the lubricating oil
of a large industrial gas turbine engine. The oil flows through the tube at 0.19 kg/s
(Cp = 2.18 kJ/kg K), and the coolant water flows in the annulus in the opposite
direction at the rate of 0.15 kg/s (C p= 4.18 kJ/kg K).the oil enters the coolant at 425 K
and leaves 345 While the coolant enters at 285 K. How long must the tube be made
to perform this duty if the heat transfer coefficient from oil to tube surface is 2250
W/m2 K and from tube surface to water is 5650 W/m2 K? The tube has a mean die of
12.5mm and its wall presents negligible resistance to heat transfer. (Ans. L =7.21
