Heat transfer enhancement is the process of improving the performance of a heat transfer system. It generally means increasing the heat transfer coefficient. The performance of heat exchanger depends how effectively heat is utilized. The high performance of heat exchangers are very much essential in many practical applications such as aerospace, vehicles, refrigeration and air conditioning, cooling of electric equipment and so on. Reduction of the size of the heat exchanger may be possible due to improvement in the performance of heat exchanger. On the other hand, a high performance heat exchanger of a fixed size can give a increased heat transfer rate and also there is decrease in temperature difference between the process fluids enabling efficient utilization of thermodynamic availability.
