Triply periodic minimal surface for heat exchangers
Published on November 29, 2021
Key Software Capabilities
Gyroid is a member of the triply periodic minimal surfaces (TPMS) family, one of the most popular TPMS that are utilized to create structures with robust mechanical performance. Gyroids help you attain lightweight structures, are self-supporting for 3D printing, and have the most surface area to volume ratio improving heat transfer and cycle efficiency.
In this nTop Live, Yuki Okada, Technical Marketing Engineer at nTop, shows you what a gyroid from the TPMS family is and how it can be utilized in a heat exchanger. He will import a part from CAD, create the heat exchange region, and create baffles to create a multi-phase heat exchanger.
Watch and learn how to:
- Learn about the gyroid, one of the member of the TPMS family
- Learn how to create the heat exchange region.
- Create baffles to create a multi-phase heat exchanger.
