NEW ALGORITHM SIMPLIFIES HEAT-EXCHANGER CALCULATIONS

Jorge Ancheyta Ruben Nares Abel Moreno Carlos G. Anaya Institute Mexicano del Petroleo Mexico City The original algorithm by Urbicain and Paloshi for the simulated operation of air-cooled heat exchangers has been modified.1 The new method reduces the running time of the programs by assuming that a row of tubes cannot belong to several passes. Simulation programs for air-cooled heat exchangers (ACHE) are useful tools for the design and operation of this type of equipment.
