Brand new feature from Simcenter Amesim now enables to model heat exchangers at very early design phases. New simple functional half heat exchangers need less parameters to get accurate steady state results.
A new heat flux calculator allows modeling a heat exchanger with only one sizing target outlet condition (temperature, heat flux or enthalpy). This is ideal for dissociating hot/cold loop predesign!
For more information, just have a look at the Simcenter Amesim thermal hydraulic “simple heat exchanger” demo.
