A Project to Design and Build Compact Heat Exchangers
Davis, Richard A.
Chemical Engineering Education, v39 n1 Win 2005
Students designed and manufactured compact, shell-and-tube heat exchangers in a project-based learning exercise integrated with our heat transfer course. The heat exchangers were constructed from common building materials available at home improvement centers. The cost of materials for a device was less than $20. The project gave students hands-on, mechanical experience with common tools and materials of construction. Students developed their skills in engineering judgment and gained confidence in basic principles of engineering design.
