Simulation of Thermal and Hydrodynamic Performance of Laminate Evaporators 2000-01-0573

The thermal and hydrodynamic performance of laminate (plate type) evaporators is simulated by using the computer program developed earlier by the author (Mathur, 1997). The correlations for predicting heat transfer, pressure drop, void fraction are used from the literature. The working fluid used in this investigation is R-134a. The simulated performance is compared with the experimentally obtained data from the calorimeter tests. The simulated thermal and hydrodynamic performance is within ″9% of the experimental data. Detailed performance data has been presented in this paper.
