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. One of the most popular heat exchangers is shell-and-tube heat exchanger. This heat exchanger is made up a shell and the tubes are located inside the shell. One of the fluids moves through the tubes and another fluid moves over the tube in the shell side. Shell-and-tube heat exchanger has different types based on the flow direction. In the shell side baffles and fins are used to increase the heat transfer. CFD simulation of heat exchangers is very important as results in better designs and much higher efficiency. In the CFD simulation shell-and-tube heat exchangers we should pay attention to phenomena such as pressure drop, friction, temperature distribution turbulence effects and overall heat transfer. Moreover, we could investigate the effects of baffles and their positions, different kind of fins and surface roughness on the efficiency of the heat exchanger.
