Abstract
We present a simple mathematical model of fluid flow in a ScrapedSurface Heat Exchanger (SSHE). Specifically we consider steady isothermal flow of a Newtonian fluid around a periodic array of pivoted scraper blades in a channel with one stationary and one moving wall, when there is an applied pressure gradient in a direction perpendicular to the wall motion. The flow is fully threedimensional, but decomposes naturally into a twodimensional transverse flow driven by the boundary motion and a longitudinal pressuredriven flow.
