Abstract
Heat exchangers are a used in a commercial, residential, and military cooling systems. Their thermal performance is measured by their ability to efficiently transfer heat. By increasing the heat exchanger efficiency, the size and weight of the system can be reduced. This work explores the use of twisted tape technologies and the use of advanced nanofluids for improving thermal performance. ACT has demonstrated excellent thermal performance with our concept in Phase I and plan to further develop the technology for large volume, commercial applications. The overall objective of the Phase I and Phase II programs is to demonstrate ACT
