Hi ya, can anybody define the term 'unsupported tube length' in TEMA code? according to TEMA, its mean the span tube length between central baffles, but if one have the segmentel baffles, eg baffle#1, baffle#2. can we define it as the span length between baffle#1 and baffle #2 instead of baffle #1 to baffle#1 in order to reduce the baffle plate thickness. mean while is there any method to calculate the baffle plate thikness instead of table RCB4.41 shown in TEMA. any answer for this will be nice.
