Research Update: CFD Modeling of Offset Strip Plate-fin Exchanger with Vapor and Liquid Services
January 16, 2017Compact plate-fin heat exchangers are widely used for electronics, aerospace, and automotive cooling because of the light weight and small size. The majority of open-literature data use air as the test fluid; thus, the application of the ensuing air-based methods to higher Prandtl number, liquid services is dubious. In some applications,...
