To approximate a thermal problem as HEAT EXCHANGER, are the fluids which interacts thermally are to be moving? I have a problem where a tank with a jacket. Tank contains oil at ambient and water flows jacket to heat the oil. Oil has no velocity,but water flows upward. Can this problem be approximated as HEAT EXCHANGER? or any clue to solve this problem?
