Article Title: Performance Analysis of Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers: A case study
by Ebieto, C.E and Eke G.B.

This paper presents performance analyses of shell and tube heat exchangers. Analytical method was used to develop correlation for the performance analysis. A program was written in MATLAB to check for the thermal and hydraulic suitability of the heat exchangers. The program was tested with dataof five different industrial heat exchangers from Port Harcourt Refinery. The results obtained showed reasonable agreement with the actual field data, thus demonstrating that the program is reliable and can be applied in the performance analysis of shell and tube heat exchangers.
Keywords: heat exchangers, performance, analysis, MATLAB.
