How I can calculate the volume of shell and tube heat exchanger?

### RE: Volume of heat exchanger

Cross sectional area of the inner portion tube multiplied by the length of the tube(s) for the tube side volume.

For the shell side, the cross sectional area of the inner portion of the shell side multiplied by its length; then subtract the volume taken up by the tube(s). The tube volume used in this portion would be using the cross sectional area of the outer portion of the tube.
