This paper presents thermal hydraulic analysis of the cross-flow finned tube heat exchangers for an outdoor unit in residential air-conditioning and heat pump applications. Performance of heat exchangers affect significantly the system energy efficiency and size of the air-conditioning and heat pumps. The Navier-Stokes equations and the energy equation are solved for the three dimensional computation domain that encompasses multiple rows of the fin-tube heat exchangers. Rather than solving the flow and temperature fields for the outdoor heat exchanger directly, the fin-tube array has been approximated by the porous medium of equivalent permeability, which is estimated from a three dimensional finite volume solution for the periodic fin element. This information is essential and time-effective in carrying out the global flow field calculation which, in turn, provides the face velocity for the microscopic temperature-field calculation of the heat exchanger. The flow field and associated heat transfer for a wide range of face velocity and fin-tube arrangements are examined and the results are presented compared with experimental data. The predicted pressure drop and heat transfer rate for various inlet velocities are in excellent agreement with the measured data.
