HTRI continues to improve its single-phase crossflow methods. We have completed a thorough review of heat transfer and pressure drop correlations for single-phase flow outside banks of plain- and low-finned tubes. This webinar highlights some of our findings and summarizes the performance of the improvements we are proposing for our correlations. Further explanation of this work can be found in HTRI Technical Report S-SS-3-23 (for plain tube banks) and a new report that will be issued soon (for low-finned tube banks).
