Abstract
The goal of this project is to build an extremely efficient, light weight, low cost metal cross flow heat exchanger. The heat exchanger will be fabricated using a derivative of the LIGA manufacturing process that has been developed at Louisiana StateUniversity over the last five years. It is specifically designed for transfer between a gas and a liquid where pumping losses of the two fluids needs to be minimized. The heat exchanger will compete against markets such as automobile radiators,refrigeration condensors and evaporators, and a variety of other applications where cross flow heat exchanger designs are desirable.Light weight, compact heat exchangers that can efficiently transfer heat from a gas to a liquid with minimal pumping lossesare valuable, especially in the automotive and aerospace industries where weight, and volume savings are of extreme importance. This heat exchanger will be able to exceed the performance standards of existing technologies and will be used in a number ofcommercial and/or DoD applications.
