Provides the background needed to understand and master the commercial software packages used by professional engineers in the design and analysis of heat exchangers. Focuses on types of heat exchangers most widely used by industry: shell-and-tube exchangers (including condensers, reboilers and vaporizers), air-cooled heat exchangers and double-pipe (hairpin) exchangers. Applied focus on real world problems. The only reference to cover the design and optimization of entire heat exchanger networks. New to this edition: new time-saving heuristics; substantial new section on pinch analysis. Serth has done an outstanding job putting together this easy to use, cook-book type heat transfer book. Excellent for both the practicing engineer or the student with prior knowledge of introductory heat transfer concepts. The book offers simple, yet elegant solutions couple with detailed explanations to some of the most commonly faced heat exchangers (shell and tube), reboilers (kettle and thermosyphon), condensers and general heat transfer problems encountered in industry. Flawless piece of literature, highly recommended! (Milton A. Chaves, Process Engineer, US. Review of the First edition Utilizes leading commercial software.

Details the development of initial configuration for a heat exchanger and how to systematically modify it to obtain an efficient final design. Abundant case studies and rules of thumb, along with copious software examples, provide a complete library of reference designs and heuristics for readers to base their own designs on.
