Abstract

SIMULATION MODELLING ANALYSIS OF SHELL AND TUBE HEAT EXCHANGER

Rufus Ogbuka Chime*, Momoh Abdullah Yakubu, Echegi Christian Uche

ABSTRACT

Simulation is the imitation of the operation of a real-world process or system over time. The act of simulating something first requires that a model be developed; this model represents the key characteristics or behaviors of the selected physical or abstract system or process. The model represents the system itself, whereas the simulation represents the operation of the system over time. Modelling is about building representations of things in the real world and allowing ideas to be investigated; it is central to all activities in the process for building or creating an artefact of some form or other. In effect, a model is a way of expressing a particular view of an identifiable system of some kind. Analysis is the process of breaking a complex topic or substance into smaller parts in order to gain a better understanding of it. Today, finite element analysis is an integral and major component in many fields of engineering design and manufacturing. Major established industries such as the automobile, aerospace, chemical, pharmaceutical, petroleum, electronics, and communications, as well as emerging technologies such as nanotechnology and biotechnology rely on the finite element method to simulate complex phenomenon at different scales for design and manufacture of high-technology products. A Heat exchanger is an efficient device constructed for the efficacious heat transfer between two fluids of different temperature. Heat exchangers are extensively used in food processing industry, dairy industry, biochemical processing, pharmceuticals, chemical plants and petroleum plants to mention but a few. Shell and tube heat exchanger consist of series of tube containing the fluid that must be either heated or cooled with the second fluid being circulated over the tubes that need to be heated or cooled The scope of this work includes, to design, model, simulate, and sustainability analysis of Shell and tube heat exchanger. Computer aided design uses the mathematical and graphic processing power of the computer to assist the engineer in the creation, modification, analysis, and designs many factors have contributed to CAD technology becoming the necessary tool in the engineering technical data base, series of soft wares was used in the analysis of this project.
