Efficient plate-fin heat exchanger design driven for aerospace applications
Published on July 20, 2020
Plate-fin heat exchangers are used extensively in aerospace, manufacturing, and building services because they are durable, efficient, lightweight, and compact.
In this nTop Live, Gabrielle Thelen, Application Engineer at nTop, explains how to design plate-fin heat exchangers in nTop based on analytic models. She also shows a way to further optimize their performance by applying a sinusoidal pattern with variable wavelength and amplitude.
Watch and learn how to:
- Parametrically design advanced heat exchangers that meet performance requirements
- Create designs with a targeted surface area based on a desired heat transfer coefficient
- Automate and repeat nTop workflows to accelerate iterative product development
