Abstract

In our present study an attempt is made to analyze heat transfer in shell and tube heat exchanger with the help of Ansys fluent 14.5.Two cases have been analyzed. Case-1 Heat transfer in shell and tube heat exchanger with working fluid as water at tube side as well as shell side (i.e. water without alumina, Al2O3 nanoparticles). Case-2 Heat transfer in shell and tube heat exchanger with tube side fluid as water and shell side fluid as water with addition of alumina nano-particles of size 38 nm at volume fractions of 4%. From result obtained it is observed that heat transfer is more in shell and tube heat exchanger when nano-particles are added to the water compared with the without nano-particles in the water.
