Important auxiliary equations are presented that are typically used in compact heat exchanger research. These relationships are presented only for selected compact heat exchangers — bare pipe, helically finned pipe, plate finned pipe, spined pipe, and plate exchangers. The equations primarily address issues relating to heat exchanger geometry, surface area to volume ratio, and fin efficiency. Furthermore, they are organized in a systematic manner and consolidated in one central location for easy reference.
