Design of CROSS - FLOW HEAT EXCHANGERS from Tested Core Sections 420132

THIS paper presents a simple and rapid method of determining the performance of cross-flow intercoolers, oil coolers, or Prestone radiators from laboratory tests of a model or basic unit of the cooler. The method lends itself equally as well to the determination of the size of a cooler of any set performance.
Due to the comparative rapidity with which these calculations can be made, it becomes, with the use of this method, an easy matter to make a series of calculations to determine the relations between lengths, cooling air flow, and pressure drops, for any desired performance.
