Designing of a hot water heater

By Pavel Zdražil


This thesis processes design of hot water heater. It was done thermal, hydraulic and basic strength calculations in the work and from their outcomes was set up a design of heat exchanger, which was afterwards modelled and drawn. In the beginning of the work is reader introduced to heat exchanger types and characteristics and also to its thermal processes. Then the work continues with thermal design of the heat exchanger, where the most important outcome is heat transfer surface with other geometric parameters, followed by hydraulic design, where pressure loss on water side was calculated. The calculations are finished up by basic strength design, calculating thickness of shell and tube walls. The thesis is ended with evaluation of computed design and description of its basic features
