Abstract: This article reports experimental investigation of heat transfer and friction factor characteristics with different flow rates by means of CFD simulation. In this work is conducted by the double pipe heat exchanger with counter flow direction. The data acquire from the plain tube double pipe heat exchanger with the CFD simulation and ensure the validation results. The plain tube with dissimilar mass flow rates were also studied for comparison assessment. A commercial CFD package, Ansys CFD analysis was used in this study and 3D models of double pipe heat exchanger was generated in this simulation.
