Bonus Report: Heat Transfer Developments

What are the benefits of rigorous modeling in heat exchanger design?

This article examines three applications where rigorous heat exchanger models can boost value derived from process simulation and provide more accurate results.

Cazenave, J., Aspen Technology Inc.

Today, process engineers are responsible for many project activities, including conceptual design, revamp studies and operational troubleshooting. Increasingly, the process simulator is an essential tool central to these activities. Process simulators are very powerful tools for modeling all or parts of a process. While they are excellent for general-purpose process modeling, it is the process engineer’s responsibility to understand to what extent these tools can be applied, and how combining their application with more specialized tools might be appropriate. This choice is ultimately based on the business and technical objectives to be achieved. This article examines three different
