In this study, we conducted experiments and simulations to analyze the heat transfer phenomena in fixed bed tubes jacketed for cooling water flow. These experiments studied the cooling of heated air flowing at varying Reynolds numbers through three columns of different diameter. The experimental results were compared to those acquired by a Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulation of a similar system. With the CFD validated by experiment, we then studied the heat transfer of ethylene epoxidation in a cooled tube by simulation.
