The present work is to analyze turbulent and incompressible flow in a cross flow heat exchanger using FLUENT code. The vortex formation length behind the first cylinder is the longest at any time instant. The hotter fluids are confined to the near-wall and wake regions, while a narrow stream of cooler fluid is coveted through the tube bank. The amplitude of the pressure fluctuation increases as the flow develops from the front stagnation point. After the separation point, the pressure fluctuation is approximately kept at the same level. The density is constant.
