Wall temperature in heat exchanger

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?

Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?
