In this article, Heller type cooling towers have been simulated in four different arrangements under the free convection and cross wind conditions. The obtained results from the numerical work have been compared with the available experimental results. By studying the flow pattern, the influential factors on the reduction of air intake flow rate (AIFR) resulting from the interaction of the cooling towers, and also the negative effects of cross wind in different tower arrangements have been investigated.
Key words: Heller type cooling tower / air intake flow rate / cooling tower arrangement
