Abstract Equations are developed to define the performance advantage of roughened tubes in heat exchanger design, relative to smooth tubes of equal diameter. Three rough tube applications are presented: 1. To obtain increased heat exchange capacity; 2. To reduce the friction power; and 3. To permit a reduction of heat-transfer surface area. A heat exchanger design procedure is developed for each application and is based on the use of previously developed generalized heat transfer and friction… Expand
