Shell and tube heat exchangers and bar and plate aftercoolers are used in a diesel marine engine to remove heat from the engine coolant and to cool the pressurized air going into the engine. In order to improve the overall effectiveness of these two components, analyses have been performed using heat exchanger theory and the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software FLUENT®. Detailed information of flow property distributions and heat transfer was obtained in order to provide a fundamental understanding of the component operation. Comparisons have been made between CFD results, theoretical calculations, and measurement data. Parametric investigations and feasibility studies have been conducted to find optimum conditions for the engine and component performance.
