In evaporators, the distribution of the liquid and vapor phases among the channels is a convoluted problem, depending on a wide range of parameters. However, maldistribution causes important losses of performance. Due to their complexity, the accurate modeling of such two-phase flows is difficult to handle. Hence, experimental studies are...

The urban energy transition requires innovative heating and cooling systems, as well as enhanced flexibility in electricity usage. This paper explores the theoretical potential for vertical farms to contribute to the energy transition by supplying residual heat to local district heat networks and flexible electricity usage. A stepped approach...

Metal additive manufacturing has enabled great diversity and design freedom in heat exchanger design. However, these benefits cannot be adequately realised without optimizing its ancillary components as well, specifically the inlet and outlet manifolds. Optimizing the manifolds can significantly improve the flow distribution inside the heat...

Gasketed Plate Heat Exchangers (GPHEs) are a sub-class of heat exchangers that enable heat transfer between 2 fluids via metal plates. A common problem encountered in all heat exchangers is fouling. Fouling can be described as the deposition and accumulation of unwanted materials such as scale, algae, suspended solids and insoluble salts on a...

The main problem in density-based two-fluid optimization is the fact that the two fluids often mix in optimal designs. Therefore, state-of-the-art two-fluid heat exchanger optimization includes non-mixing constraints. However, the current non-mixing constraints can only impose a constant wall-thickness between the two fluids. Depending on the...

Hydrogen is seen as a potential energy carrier for the next generation of aircraft that will be more climate-friendly than the previous generation of kerosene-powered aircraft. Two types of hydrogen-based propulsion systems are currently foreseen for such aircraft: hydrogen combustion and hydrogen fuel cell. In addition to producing useful...

Hydrogen fuel cells are set to play an important role in decarbonizing the aviation sector. They operate at higher efficiencies than turbine engines, but their low operating temperature requires a dedicated thermal management system. The added drag, weight and parasitic power of such a system has a high impact on aircraft performance and its...

Energy efficiency is a key goal for the Quooker system. To further increase the energy efficiency of the Quooker system, this study investigates a possible heat integration system where the waste heat from the refrigeration cycle for chilled drinking water is implemented to preheat water before entering the boiling water reservoir.<br/>Due to...

Solving conjugate heat transfer design problems is relevant for various engineering applications requiring efficient thermal management. Heat exchange between fluid and solid can be enhanced by optimizing the system layout and the shape of the flow channels. As heat is transferred at fluid/solid interfaces, it is crucial to accurately resolve...

Printed circuit heat exchangers (PCHE) are designed to improve heat recovery and energy saving in supercritical CO<sub>2</sub> (S-CO<sub>2</sub>) power cycles. In the current study, a modified channel PCHE is proposed based on the regular straight channel and a zigzag channel. The thermal–hydraulic performance of four different types of PCHE...

High concentration NH<sub>3</sub>/H<sub>2</sub>O is suitable for Kalina cycles used for the recovery of low grade heat. Plate heat exchangers (PHEs) are compact and reduce the charge of working fluid. This paper investigates the condensation of NH<sub>3</sub>/H<sub>2</sub>O with NH<sub>3</sub> mass concentrations of 80%-96%. The vapor and...

Urban morphology affects the sensible heat flux and net radiation exchange which can alter urban heat mitigation plans. This study first parameterized the geometric effects on the net radiation, and then calculated the net radiation and sensible heat flux in the urban landscape of Hong Kong. Considering that the sensible heat flux is the main...

In the past, fin-and tube heat exchanger (FTHE) tube pattern ratios have been largely based on ad-hoc design principles. Here, we investigate the optimal tube arrangements for a FTHE with plain fins in marine environments represented by two different air types; one for unfiltered air with high condensation rate and one for clean dry filtered...

Sound emissions of an automotive engine cooling system are studied using both single-microphone directivity measurements and a rotating beamforming technique. These measurements provide reference acoustic data on such a system and some new understanding of the effect that the radiator induces on the distribution of sound sources. Indeed, the...
