A root cause failure analysis was performed on these units and the results were then checked and validated using computational fluid dynamics (CFD). . Once this analysis was validated using CFD several engineering solutions were then checked and validated with this technique. The purpose of this paper is to describe the analytical process to deduce the root cause; the verification of the root cause using CFD, field analysis, and destructive analysis, and the design of potential solution using CFD. This experience offers an alternative for design using CFD where applicable for welded plate heat exchangers.
