Design of a natural dry cooling tower has been accomplished in two sections: the design of heat exchangers and the numerical solution of flow through the tower. Heat exchanger (Heller type) has been simulated thermodynamically and then coupled with a computer program, which calculated the turbulent natural convection flow through the tower. The computer program developed for this purpose can be used to obtain thermodynamic propertied of the cooling tower such as mass flow rate of air, temperature of outlet water, distribution of temperature, distribution of velocity, and distribution of pressure through the tower. Numerical results have been compared with experimental data of Shahid Montazery Thermal Power Plant under different environmental conditions. Comparison between numerical results and experimental data showed good agreement.
