This paper discusses the effect of tube bundle to shell clearance, mean oil temperature, mean water temperature, and oil flow rate on the shell-side heat-transfer film coefficients and pressure losses for laminar flow in unbaffled and cross-baffled heat exchangers. The results for cross-baffled heat exchangers can be correlated by considering the flow to be a combination of flows parallel to the tubes and across the tubes.
