Heat Transfer in Minichannels Tubes for Automotive Evaporator 2006-01-1449

The recent evolution in automotive evaporator technology with multiport flat tubes replacing the plates has lead to new heat transfer pattern on the refrigerant side. Common used correlations can no longer be applied to model the heat transfer coefficient and new developed correlations are often limited to experimental conditions. This study presents a state of the art as well as a comparison of experimental results to these new correlations.
