Optimal thin plate heat exchanger design
Published on May 18, 2021
Plate heat exchangers pack high heat transfer efficiency in a small physical size. While designing them, engineers can benefit from exploring multiple design variations using structured Design of Experiments.
In this nTop Live, Alec Guay, Application Engineer at nTop, teaches you how to use constructive and destructive waves to create optimal surface patterns for thin plate heat exchangers. He creates a reusable design workflow that generates both the plates and stamping tooling. He also shares 3 benchmark designs to get you started.
Watch and learn how to:
- Design optimal thin plate heat exchangers using waves to drive plate patterns
- Automatically generate stamping tooling for manufacturing
- Iterate faster using nTop’s instant visualization capabilities
