Shape Optimization of a Plate Heat Exchanger

Application ID: 99521

This model demonstrates how to use the built-in shape optimization functionality to improve the performance of a plate heat exchanger. The optimization reduces the path immediately in front of the inlets and outlets to increase the length of typical streamlines. This leads to a improved heat transfer rate for the same driving pressure.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
