PRESSURE DROP AND HEAT TRANSFER TO POWER LAW FLUIDS ACROSS STAGGERED TUBE BANKS
M.K. Goel & Dr. S.N.Gupta
 
ABSTRACT
The heat transfer rates and pressure drop data available in the literature for the flow of water and power law non- Newtonian fluid flowing across staggered triangular tube bank are analyzed using capillary tube bundle approach. Correlations for predicting friction factor and heat transfer are proposed and compared with those based on parallel channel model.
