NTU and Plate heat exchanger

  1. Nov 3, 2015 #1

    I am woking on a project with dimensioning a plate heat exchanger and are looking at the effectiveness NTU method. The textbooks provide NTU equations for many kinds of heat exchangers but not for plate heat exchangers.

    Does anyone knows where I can find an NTU equation for a counter flow plate heat exchanger?

    Best regards
