J. Pressure Vessel Technol 140(5), 051206 (Aug 31, 2018) (4 pages) Paper No: PVT-18-1021; doi: 10.1115/1.4041059 History: Received January 22, 2018; Revised July 08, 2018

Based on the unified analytical (UA) method and the unified and refined analytical (URA) method of stress analysis for fixed tubesheet (TS) heat exchangers (HEXs), floating head, and U-tube HEXs, the applicable configuration of HEX which depends on the combination of the TS edge conditions is discussed in this paper. Comparison shows that the UA and the URA methods cover a wide range of HEX configurations well beyond established ASME methods.
