A variety of methods for the prediction of acoustic resonances in heat exchangers are recommended in the literature. There is currently no clear guideline available to designers for the avoidance of these resonances. This paper compares some of the latest developments in this field, proposes a new procedure for design and outlines a specific example of the procedure.
