Abstract:

The work in the second quarterly period was in Phase I activities. These activities are planned to produce information which is required for the final heat exchanger designs. Modifications were made to various tools to experimentally develop the best methods for forming and joining metal foil materials. Experimental test samples were subjected to pressurization tests to evaluate the strength of the bonds and the design limitations. Improvements to the heat exchanger designs have resulted from analysis of the experimental work in forming, joining, and pressure testing. The literature survey and study of materials and coatings suitable for high temperature heat exchanger construction were completed. Analytical work was initiated to support the final designs for the heat exchanger ducting transitions, and manifolds. Author
