Numerical Optimization of Baffle Design in A Parallel Heat Exchanger Header Using CFD and Genetic Algorithm

Maldistribution of refrigerant flow in parallel heat exchanger is one of the main reasons which reduces the thermal performance. This study demonstrates a numerical method to automatically evaluate

Fractal-Like Flow-Fields with Minimum Entropy Production for Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Fuel Cells

It is shown that the FC efficiency could be increased by design optimization of the fractal system, and the most appropriate design can be found from multi-criteria optimization, resulting in a Pareto-frontier on the dependencies of TEP vs TV computed for all studied geometries.

Optimization Design by Coupling Computational Fluid Dynamics and Genetic Algorithm

This chapter demonstrates a kind of modern optimization method by coupling computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and genetic algorithms (GAs) and finds a set of results improving the distribution of flow.

Flow Field Patterns for Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells

Flow field designs for the bipolar plates of the proton exchange membrane fuel cell are reviewed; including the serpentine, parallel, interdigitated, mesh type or their mixtures, furthermore 2D



Flow distribution property of the constructal distributor and heat transfer intensification in a mini heat exchanger

This article reports a numerical and experimental study on flow maldistribution and heat transfer intensification in a mini heat exchanger with constructal distributor/collector integrated. The flow

Constructal optimization of arborescent structures with flow singularities

Topology optimization of channel flow problems

This paper describes a topology design method for simple two-dimensional flow problems. We consider steady, incompressible laminar viscous flows at low-to-moderate Reynolds numbers. This makes the

Topology Optimization of Fluid Problems by the Lattice Boltzmann Method

This paper shows how the variation of the porosity can be used in conjunction with the lattice Boltzmann method for the optimal design of fluid domains and studies the potential of this topology optimization approach.
