Award Amount: $79,715.00
 

Abstract:

Mezzo Technologies is currently developing an extremely compact, sturdy cross flow heat exchanger that is particularly effective in a variety of applications. The goal of this project is to optimize current panel design and configuration technology for use on the F-35/JSF aircraft, and examine the overall weight and volume gains by replacing plate fin heat exchangers currently used with Mezzo's cross flow heat exchangers. Mezzo will design four heat exchangers that will satisfy the conditions faced by the aircraft cooling systems. One of the designs will be selected and tested against its modeled predictions. The technology incorporates the use of panels with micro-channel air passages to enhance heat transfer. These panels can be oriented in various configurations to fit specified design envelopes. The designed core will be smaller, lighter, and have reduced pressure drop through both the air and coolant sides. This proposed heat exchanger design would significantly increase the performance of the aircraft cooling systems.
