In the industrial world, heat transfer is one the phenomena occurring in many important industrial processes whether we need to add heat or remove heat from the systems and the streams. For instance, we use different kinds of heat exchangers and one of them is plate heat exchanger. This heat exchanger is made up of thin metal plates with large surface areas which make heat transfer easier between hot and sold fluids. Hot and cold currents moves between plates without mixing in different directions. It should be mentioned that overall performance of plate heat exchangers are better than other types, they occupy less space and we can change the area of the surface heat transfer is taking place. CFD simulation of heat exchangers is very important as results in better designs and much higher efficiency. In the CFD simulation plate heat exchangers we should pay attention to phenomena such as pressure drop, friction, temperature distribution turbulence effects and overall heat transfer.
