Flow visualization, manometry, and laser-Doppler anemometry have been applied to approximately two-dimensional water flow around segmental baffles with baffle spacing/depth equal to 0.4, window cuts from 10 to 50 percent, and Reynolds numbers ranging from 600–10,500 in order to simulate important aspects relating to shellside flow in shell-and-tube heat exchangers. The main features of the flow (which is eventually periodic in the streamwise direction), development lengths, pressure loss coefficients, and mean and rms velocity distributions are presented.
