Abstract
The proposed effort will seek to further design and develop vacuum brazed high density folded-fin modular heat exchangers. The scalability of these heat exchangers would provide a means for fabricating large area high performance cold plates by joining via friction stir welding. The advantages of this approach would be an increase in system performance, reliability and efficiency. From a manufacturing stand point the technology would establish the capability to facilitate future product improvement across a broad range of development programs.
