Abstract

Through analyzing the flow organization of a multi-stream heat exchanger, the conception of even temperature-difference factors for multi-stream heat exchangers was proposed. By applying this factor, the relationship between flow organization and even property of temperature-difference was discussed and analyzed. On the basis of those, having taken the effect of field-synergism into account, judging the factor of temperature-difference even property was used to optimize the flow organization of multi-stream heat exchangers. Keywords: even temperature-difference factor, flow organization, multi-stream heat exchangers. 1 Introduction Recently, multi-stream heat exchangers, one kind of compact heat exchanger, have been the subject of much res
