This dissertation reports a project on the simulation of the heat exchanger under fouled conditions. The type of fouling studied in this project is the crude oil fouling which has been categorized as a chemical reaction fouling, and is the main cause of fouling in heat exchanger. Chemical reaction fouling is a combination of heat and mass transfer, and chemical reactions. The rates of chemical reactions are difficult to predict. Fouling conditions such as fluid velocity, thermal conductivity and the film and bulk temperatures, were included in this simulation to study their effects on the performance of the heat exchanger. The threshold model will be useful to determine the threshold values for the variables in the mitigation process. The heat exchanger used in this project was a TEMA standard type AES shell and tube heat exchanger. The overall heat transfer coefficient, U was found to be 344.06 W /m2 K with the heat transfer rate, Q of the value 4.3907 MW under clean condition. The parameters for the Ebert-Panchal model were proposed based on the types of crude oil and its blend. iii
