Abstract


The present work shows the software structure developed for teaching and learning of the dynamics and control of shell and tubes heat exchangers. The program shows (numerical and graphical mode) the dynamic behavior in open and closed loop under different design parameters and variable operations conditions. The software allows changing operation and design conditions such as temperature and flow inlet in shells and tubes, number and length of tubes, inside and outside diameter of tubes, number of passes, shell outside diameter and fouling factor.
