Optimization of a Heat Exhanger with Turbulent Flow

Application ID: 90651


Commercial heat exchangers often feature a complex design. It is significantly easier to build a design with new CAD parameters than to build designs with novel topologies. This model demonstrate how to optimize the size and position of the tubes in a tube and shell heat exchanger. It is possible to apply gradient based by using the Deformed Geometry interface.

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