This study deals with the use of GI wires as passive heat transfer augmentation device. Effect of twisted GI wire with and without baffles with varying baffle spacing is studied experimentally in a double pipe heat exchanger. The effect of turbulence created by twisted wires & baffles on Nusselt number is compared with that of the theoretical one.
