Shell Side Design :

Shell-side mass velocity
            ms - Shell side fluid mass flow rate in Kg/s
            As - area of cross flow in in2 (from eq: 11)

Shell equivalent diameter:
Shell side Reynolds number:
            In fluid mechanics, the Reynolds number (Re) is a dimensionless number that
gives a measure of the ratio of inertial forces to viscous forces and consequently quantifies
the relative importance of these two types of forces for given flow conditions.
            Gs - Shell side mass velocity in m/s (from eq.12)
            de - equivalent diameter in meter (from eq.13)
            μ - Absolute or dynamic viscosity of the fluid-shell side in Pa-S (from table 7)

Shell side Prandtl number:
The Prandtl number (Pr) is a dimensionless number; the ratio of momentum diffusivity
(kinematic viscosity) to thermal diffusivity.
