{"title":"Application of Multi-objective Optimization Packages in Design of an Evaporator Coil","authors":"A.Mosavi","volume":37,"journal":"International Journal of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering","pagesStart":1,"pagesEnd":6,"ISSN":"1307-6892","URL":"https:\/\/publications.waset.org\/pdf\/5924","abstract":"A novel methodology has been used to design an\r\nevaporator coil of a refrigerant. The methodology used is through a\r\ncomplete Computer Aided Design \/Computer Aided Engineering\r\napproach, by means of a Computational Fluid Dynamic\/Finite\r\nElement Analysis model which is executed many times for the\r\nthermal-fluid exploration of several designs' configuration by an\r\ncommercial optimizer. Hence the design is carried out automatically\r\nby parallel computations, with an optimization package taking the\r\ndecisions rather than the design engineer. The engineer instead takes\r\ndecision regarding the physical settings and initializing of the\r\ncomputational models to employ, the number and the extension of the\r\ngeometrical parameters of the coil fins and the optimization tools to\r\nbe employed. The final design of the coil geometry found to be better\r\nthan the initial design.","references":"[1] Ranganayakulu, Herres 2006 Heat transfer from horizontal tubes in pool\r\nboiling: influence of three-dimensional heat conduction in the wall of\r\nthe evaporator tube\u00d4\u00c7\u00f6a finite element analysis Springer Heat Mass\r\nTransfer 42: 271-278\r\n[2] Bart, Brozio, Herbsthofer 2000 Heat Transfer and Hydrodynamics in\r\nAnnular Chromatography: CFDSimulation and Experiments Springer J.\r\nof Thermal Science Vol.9, No.2\r\n[3] Kamali, Binesh 2008 The importance of rib shape effects on the local\r\nheat transfer and flow friction characteristics of square ducts with ribbed\r\ninternal surfaces Science Direct International Communications in Heat\r\nand Mass Transfer\r\n[4] Jeong ,Haa, Kwon , 2006 Evaluation of the conduction shape factor with\r\na CFD code for a liquid-metal heat transfer\r\n[5] Fard 2009 CFD modeling of heat transfer of CO2 at supercritical\r\npressures flowing vertically in porous tubes Sciencedirect International\r\nCommunications in Heat and Mass Transfer\r\n[6] Arularasan & Velraj, 2008, modeling and simulation of a parallel plate\r\nheat sink using computational fluid dynamics, springer, Int J Adv Manuf\r\nTechnol DOI 10.1007\/s00170-008-1867-9\r\n[7] Copiello, Fabbri 2009 Multi-objective genetic optimization of the heat\r\ntransfer from longitudinal wavy fins Science direct International Journal\r\nof Heat and Mass Transfer 52\r\n[8] Samad Lee 2008 Multi-objective optimization of a dimpled channel for\r\nheat transfer augmentation Springer Heat Mass Transfer\r\n[9] Moon 2009 Optimization of a stepped circular pin-fin array to enhance\r\nheat transfer performance Springer Heat Mass Transfer","publisher":"World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology","index":"Open Science Index 37, 2010"}
