Abstract:

This paper presents an interactive finned-tube evaporator and condenser design program, EVAP-COND (ver. 3), which incorporates a computational intelligence module, ISHED (Intelligent System for Heat Exchanger Design), for optimization of refrigerant circuitry. This paper presents ISHED's design, its function, the parameters controlling an optimization run, selected examples of ISHED experimentation, and EVAP-COND/ISHED integration.
