Abstract: The analytical solutions for the temperature variation of two streams in parallel flow, counter flow and cross-flow heat exchangers and related entropy generation due to heat exchange between the streams are presented. The analysis of limiting cases for the relative entropy generation is performed, and corresponding analytical expressions are given. The obtained results may be included in a more general procedure concerning optimal heat exchanger design.
Keywords: recuperative heat exchangers; relative entropy generation; analytical solution
