This paper presents a theoretical work, in order to apply well tested experimental correlations by Gnielinski to a lumped parameters analysis of cross-flow heat exchanger. It produces an effective set of equations which could be useful and effective in order to produce an accurate design of staggered and in line heat exchangers, but also heat pipes based exchangers. The presented method can help designer of heat exchangers to design and determinate performances of cross flow heat exchangers starting by the physical properties of a pipe (or heat pipe) and using geometrical parameters of the exchanger produces an effective evaluation of performances of the whole exchanger.
