Heat Exchanger Library - Release Information


Version 1.3 contains the changes described below.

New features

  • Gas-liquid plate heat exchangers components with plain plate surface, to be used in both counterflow and co-flow.
  • Gas-liquid plate heat exchangers components with Chevron plate surface, to be used in both counterflow and co-flow.
  • Liquid-liquid plate heat exchangers components with plain plate surface, to be used in both counterflow and co-flow.
  • Liquid-liquid plate heat exchangers components with Chevron plate surface, to be used in both counterflow and co-flow.
  • Gas-gas plate heat exchangers components with plain plate surface, to be used in both counterflow and co-flow.
  • Gas-gas plate heat exchangers components with Chevron plate surface, to be used in both counterflow and co-flow.
  • Testbenches for plate heat exchangers: gas-gas, liquid-gas and liquid-liquid.
  • A set of heat transfer and pressure drop correlations for Chevron plate heat exchangers.
  • A new two-phase/air flattube heat exchanger component which contains a receiver after a given pass.

Improvements

  • Improved in library documentation, in particular for the Kandlikar correlation.
  • Improved Modelica compliance.
