Heat transfer enhancement in laminar regime by split and recombine (SAR) mechanism, based on the baker's transformation, is investigated. Two different heat exchangers, called SARI and SAR2, are studied. Their geometries are inspired from the previous studies reported in the literature. The working fluid on both, shell and tube side, is water and the temperature on the shell side is kept constant. Experiments are carried out for the Reynolds number range 1001000, and provides a less uniform temperature field at the outlet.
