The analytical solutions of heat exchanger effectiveness for four-row crossflow, cross-counterflow and cross-parallelflow have been derived in the recent study. The main objective of this study is to investigate the effect of heat exchanger flow configuration on thermal performance with refrigerant mixtures. Difference of heat exchanger effectiveness for all flow arrangements relative to an analytical many-row solution has been analyzed. A comparison of four-row cross counterflow heat exchanger effectiveness between analytical solutions and experimental data with water, R-22, and R-410A is presented.
