    How to size a heat exchanger?

    Lets assume an exchanger that is 100% efficient (no heat loss). Duty (Q) and LMTD is known. Your overall heat transfer coefficient (U) is dependent on your transfer coefficients on the shell and tube side, and the resistance of the pipe walls (we're going to ignore entrance effects and fouling)...
