    How to calculate the surface area of a finned tube?



    I'm just wondering if there is an industry standard way of calculating the surface area of a finned tube? If not, can someone provide me with some formulas on how to calculate the surface area? Thanks!

    kindly check the tube manufacturers catalog where they will have specified multiplication factors for calculating the surface area values.
