Programmes for the Price Optimum Design of Heat Exchangers.
British Chem Eng 1970 Apr; 15(4):491-494
Because heat exchangers are expensive items and often account for a high proportion of the total cost of a plant, the incentives to optimize their design are considerable. The computer programs described in this article are for the optimum design for four important situations: (1) no change in phase, pumping costs for both fluids significant; (2) no change in phase, shell side pumping costs significant; (3) no change in phase, tube side pumping costs significant; and (4) change in phase on shell side.
