21. Example 11.3 Hot exhaust gases, which enter a finned-tube, cross-flow heat exchanger at 300 C and leave at 100 C, are used to heat pressurized water at a flow rate of 1 kg/s from 35 to 125 C. The exhaust gas specific heat is approximately 1000 J/kgK, and the overall transfer coefficient based on the gas-side surface area is Uh = 100 W/m2K. Determine the required gas-side surface area Ah using both NTU and log-mean methods.

22. Example 11.3 Known:Hot and cold fluid inlet and outlet Ts, cold fluid flow rates, and hot fluid side overall heat transfer coefficient for a cross-flow heat exchanger Find: Required hot fluid surface area Schematic:

29. Example 11.4 Consider Example 11.3, the overall transfer coefficient is Uh = 100 W/m2K and area of 40 m2. The water flow rate and inlet temperature remain at 1 kg/s and 35 C. However, a change in operating conditions for hot gas generator causes the gases to now enter the heat exchanger with a flow rate of 1.5 kg/s and a temperature of 250C. What is the rate of heat transfer by the exchanger, and what are the gas and water outlet temperatures?

30. Example 11.4 Known:Hot and cold fluid inlet conditions for a finned-tube cross-flow heat exchanger of known surface area and overall heat transfer coefficient. Find: Heat transfer rate and fluid outlet Ts. Schematic:

35. Example 11.5 The condenser of a large steam power plant is a heat exchanger in which steam is condensed to liquid water. Assume the condenser to be a shell-tube heat exchanger consisting of a single shell an 30,000 tubes, each executing two passes. The tubes are of thin wall construction with D=25 mm, and steam condenses on their outer surface with an associated convection coefficient of ho=11,000 W/m2K.

36. Example 11.5 The heat transfer rate that must be effected by the exchanger is q=2x109W, and this is accomplished by passing cooling water through the tubes at a rate of 3x104 kg/s (the flow rate per tube is therefore 1 kg/s). The water enters at 20 C, while the steam condenses at 50 C. What is the temperature of the cooling water emerging from the condenser? What is the required tube length L per pass?
