Heat transfer by extracting heat from one fluid and heating other fluid is used for most of heat exchangers This study is based on usage of joule heating to transfer heat to other fluid. The helical coil is maintained at potential difference and other fluid flows across these coils. The effect on heat transfer rate, fluid outlet temperature is studied using CFD. The analysis software used is ANSYS CFX. Further changes are made with material of heating coil to analyze the effect on heat transfer characteristics.
