Wall temperature in heat exchanger

  1. Apr 17, 2016 #1
    My notes, using an example of a cold tube-side liquid cooling down a hot shell-side liquid stated that:
    ΔTb = TbS-TbT
    Mean tube-side wall temperature:
    TwT=TbT+(tube-side film resistance)/(total resistance) * ΔTb

    Mean shell-side wall temperature:
    TwS=TbS-(shell-side film resistance)/(total resistance) * ΔTb

    S stands for shell and T stands for tube. How would the equations change if the hot fluid is in the tube and the cold fluid is in the shell?
