**What is coefficient of tube?**

1 Inside Film Coefficient. The inside film coefficient represents the resistance to heat flow caused by the change in flow regime from turbulent flow in the center of the tube to laminar flow at the tube surface.

### How do you calculate the heat transfer coefficient of a pipe?

The overall heat transfer coefficient R = Resistance(s) to heat flow in pipe wall (K/W) Other parameters are as above. The heat transfer coefficient is the heat transferred per unit area per kelvin. Thus area is included in the equation as it represents the area over which the transfer of heat takes place.

**How do you calculate the number of tubes in tube and shell heat exchanger?**

Solution: The surface area per tube will be: Sa = πDL = π (3/12) (10) ft² = 7.854 ft² – (D – tube diameter in ft). The number of tubes required would thus be: n = 178.7 ft² = 22.7 tubes (23 or 24 tubes).

#### What is average heat transfer coefficient?

Heat-transfer coefficient equal to the heat flow (Q) across the heat-transfer surface divided by the average temperature (Δt) and the area of the heat-transfer surface (F)

**How do you calculate heat coefficient?**

As the mass flow may be calculated with dm = dv x ρ (volume flow times density) we will get the “qualitative” Heat transfer coefficient αm . Using: T2, T1 the inlet and outlet temperature of the fluids and the volume flow. The heat loss is also taken as constant.

## What is overall heat transfer coefficient?

The overall heat transfer coefficient, or U-value, refers to how well heat is conducted through over a series of resistant mediums. Its units are the W/(m2°C) [Btu/(hr-ft2°F)].

**What does the heat transfer coefficient depend on?**

Heat transfer coefficient depends on both the thermal properties of a medium, the hydrodynamic characteristics of its flow, and the hydrodynamic and thermal boundary conditions.

### What is the value of heat transfer coefficient?

**How efficient are shell and tube heat exchangers?**

Maximum of effectiveness heat exchanger is 60.2% and minimum 41.48 %. The effectiveness increase directly according to thedebit of water. An experimental test was showed that shell and tube heat exchanger one shell and two tube pass effective used for oil cooling. It can reduce oil temperature up to 32.3 %.

#### Does heat transfer coefficient depend on material?

Heat transfer coefficient is not a thermophysical property of material, while it depends on the surface geometry and the conditions of boundary layer .
