Abstract
THE WASTE HEAT EXCHANGER IS OFTEN THE LARGEST SINGLE COMPONENT IN DIESEL-EXHAUST POWERED AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEMS, AND ON ACCOUNT OF ITS HIGH MATERIAL CONTENT, IS OFTEN THE HEAVIEST AND MOST COSTLY AS WELL. THE NEED EXISTS FOR A HEAT EXCHANGER DESIGN AND FABRICATION TECHNIQUE WHICH IS COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT, RESISTS FOULING FROM EXHAUST GASES, IS EASILY CLEANED, USES INEXPENSIVE MATERIALS, AND IS AMENABLE TO HIGH VOLUME MANUFACTURING. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WOULD DEVELOP A HEAT EXCHANGER MEETING THE REQUIREMENTS FOR DIESELEXHAUST POWERED AIR CONDITIONING BY UTILIZING A DESIGN APPROACH WHICH INTEGRATES A LOW-COST, FOULING RESISTANT, EASILY CLEANABLE HEAT EXCHANGER WITH THE ENGINE MUFFLER. THE PHASE I OBJECTIVE WOULD BE TO DESIGN, FABRICATE AND TEST A PROTOTYPE EXHAUSE HEAT EXCHANGER.
