VERA2D: Program for 2D analysis of flow, heat and mass transfer in evaporative cooling towers. Volume 1: Mathematical formulation, solution procedure and applications
Abstract
VERA2D is a computer program for steady twodimensional analysis of flow, heat, and mass transfer in wet cooling towers. The code is written in FORTRAN IV language and is applicable to the following types of towers: (1) mechanical draft crossflow; (2) mechanical draft counterflow; (3) natural draft crossflow; and (4) natural draft counterflow. The description of VERA2D has been provided in two volumes. Volume 1 describes the mathematical formulation, solution procedure, and several applications of the code. Some overall features of the code such as capabilities and limitations are described in both the volumes.
