Design of Heat Exchangers, pressure vessels and piping

ED5319Design of Heat Exchangers, pressure vessels and piping

Objectives: To give a broad exposure to heat exchangers & related equipment and to acquaint the students with their actual designs, involving layout, thermal and mechanical design, with real examples from the industry.

OUTCOME: The student, at the end of the course, should be able –
• To conceive a design based on the information provided for a particular application
• To learn the sizing of the equipment
• To predict the thermal behavior and carry out a stress analysis
• To come up with a mechanical design as per the relevant codes
• To do the cost economic analysis
