A relation between heat transferred and energy loss, for turbulent flow. In different tube arrangements, is made. The conditions are determined which decide the dimensions and velocities for a heat exchanger. Also, a reference to the economic dimensioning of heat exchangers is presented. In this study, the conditions which a heat exchanger must satisfy represent the best balance between the amounts of material employed. The investigation is restricted to the case of turbulent flow.
