Hey all 

I am an undergraduate student and I have a heat exchanger data that I should design. In the tube side, an organic fluid is being cooled from 670 C to 440 C. ( No Phase Change / Vapor Phase ). In the shell side, there is an organic fluid entering in two-phase (vapor fraction = 76%). at 40 C and it is heated to 230 C. (total vapor at the outlet)  


The problem that I am facing is on the shell side, I am not able to specify a good correlation for the calculation of the shell heat transfer coefficient for a fluid entering as a two-phase and exiting in one phase.

Could you guys guide me to a proper correlation?. 

Thank You in advance.
