Abstract

The dependence of heat transfer and friction parameters on fin tip configuration is investigated. Experimental tests are performed on a double tube heat exchanger with transverse annular fins on the inner tube. Seven different fin configurations are investigated. A theoretical model is used to calculate the heat transfer and friction parameters from experimental results.
