Abstract

Heat transfer enhancement is the process of increasing the heat-transfer coefficient, which enhances the system's performance. Enhancing heat transfer is a major problem for saving energy and is also beneficial economically. Many passive devices are used inside tubes to improve heat transfer such as twisted tape inserts, rough parts, extended surfaces, additives for liquids wire plugs, etc.  This research reviewed one of the most effective passive devices which are twisted tape inserts. Since it has many advantages such as simple fabrication, simple operation, and ease of maintenance. The twisted tape inserts generated swirl flow and vortex inside the tube. Therefore, the internal convective heat transfer process is significantly improved. The current research article provides an overview of different twisting tape inserts that can improve heat transfer rates. By reducing boundary layer thickness near tube walls. Which lead to reduce the size and cost of many industrial applications, including heat exchangers, refrigeration systems, air conditioners, reactors, thermal power plants, spacecraft, and automobiles. A summary of previous experimental and numerical studies is presented as well. The primary results indicated that the twisted tape inserts are demonstrated to be efficient in enhancing heat transfer inside the tube for laminar and turbulent flow. But during a turbulent flow, twisted tapes increased pressure loss more than laminar flow because of flow obstruction.
