    Hi
    anyone have the procedure to design the plate fin tube heat exchanger (air cooler) at defined mass flow rates and inlet / outlet temperatures ,
    or any one have an software package can be used for this purpose , please can share it with me

    Solidworks would be a good package to design and test your heat exchanger, you can 'build' your design and run simulations on it to analyse your design with differing parameters.

    Thanks
    but how can one obtain this package ?
    Is there a version of this package free to download ?

    I think they are quite expensive packages, am not too sure as we use it through our university
