Thermal Analysis of Shell-and-Tube Thermoacoustic Heat Exchangers
AbstractHeat exchangers are of key importance in overall performance and commercialization of thermoacoustic devices. The main goal in designing efficient thermoacoustic heat exchangers (TAHXs) is the achievement of the required heat transfer rate in conjunction with low acoustic energy dissipation. A numerical investigation is performed to examine the effects of geometry on both the viscous and thermal-relaxation losses of shell-and-tube TAHXs. Further, the impact of the drive ratio as well as the temperature difference between the oscillating gas and the TAHX tube wall on acoustic energy dissipation are explored. While viscous losses decrease with
