Abstract

A heat exchanger is a device that is used to transfer heat between two or more fluids that are at different temperatures. Heat exchangers are essential elements in a wide range of systems, including the human body, automobiles, computers, power plants, and comfort heating/cooling equipment. The most commonly used type of heat exchanger is the shell-and-tube heat exchanger, the optimal design of which is the main objective of this study.
