How does the air-side pressure drop in a air-fuel heat exchanger vary as a function of altitude and temperature?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: The variation of pressure drop26 October 2007 at 1:29pmThe variation of pressure drop as a function of altitude and temperature is due to changes in the air density. This can be determined by utilizing the ideal gas law to determine the density as a function of these two parameters and duplicate the pressure drop calculations with different density values.
