Design Considerations

Part of the Heat and Mass Transfer book series (HMT)

Abstract

The details of the specific features of the heat transfer coefficient, and pressure drop estimation have been covered throughout the previous chapters. The objective of this chapter is to summarize important theoretical solutions, results of numerical calculations and experimental correlations that are common in micro-channel devices. These results are assessed from the practical point of view so that they provide a sound basis and guidelines for the evaluation of heat transfer and pressure drop characteristics of single-phase gas–liquid and steam–liquid flows.
