4.Projections until work completion
4.1 Major tasks:
Numerical simulation of tube bank simulation at different geometrical models

4.2 Major difficulties:
Numerical simulation of combined convective and radiative heat transfer take more time

4.3 Need for time beyond 15 May 2011:
No time needed for completion of project beyond 15 May
