The peripheral finned-tube (PFT) is a novel air-side geometry for compact heat exchangers. Previous studies (Pussoli et al., 2012) evaluated the thermal-hydraulic performance of the PFT geometry under dry conditions (i.e., no frost or condensate formation on the air side). The present study focuses on quantifying the thermal-hydraulic performance of the PFT geometry under frosting conditions. A PFT prototype was tested in a closed-loop wind tunnel calorimeter to determine the influence of the… CONTINUE READING
