Pressure Vessel Engineering has been doing CFD and Thermal Analyses for a number of years when our customer’s have had a need for this type of service. We’ve tried and tested a few different methods for thermal analysis and have started using ASPEN Exchanger Design and Rating software to help design heat exchangers. In a few upcoming articles, we’ll explain how we use the software and demonstrate why it will be a valid solution for you that will save both time and cost on your projects.
