Optimize heat exchanger design for performance and energy efficiency, material selection, durability and life prediction under harsh conditions.
Used in a variety of settings across a range of scales, heat exchangers must perform reliably, often in harsh conditions, and be durable enough to operate effectively despite extremes of cyclical thermal loading—sometimes for years without replacement. Simulation offers a critical tool to optimize heat exchange performance, select the most appropriate materials and predict durability and life. Ansys heat exchanger simulation application capabilities provide that reliability.
Heat exchanger shape selection can be optimized by leveraging parameters, adjoint methods and response surfaces.
Performing steady or transient conjugate heat transfer simulations determines heat exchanger performance and the impact of thermal stresses. Models can include fluid structure interaction, fatigue life prediction and multiphase boiling, condensation and evaporation.
Using reduced order models (ROMs), high-fidelity physics simulations integrate with overall system level models for process integration and design optimization (PIDO).
