Abstract:

This report summarizes the results of a survey taken by the author, whose purpose was to identify current and future heat exchanger needs within the Division of Conservation Research and Technology CONRT of the Energy Research and Development Administration ERDA. As background information, for those who may be unfamiliar with CONRT, the function and responsibility of CONRT is to provide technology required for successful development and implementation of advanced energy conversion systems and components for ERDAs Office of Conservation. In more specific terms, the objectives of CONRT are to develop technology required to implement identified end-use components and systems and to provide research support for concepts designed to utilize or promote alternative energy sources. CONRT provides assistance in meeting technology needs of the more end-use oriented divisions of Conservation such as Transportation, Buildings and Industry, Electric Utilities and Storage. Given the research and technology responsibility for such a wide spectrum of activities, it is not surprising to find technology needs of other major groups within ERDA, outside Conservation, e.g., Solar, Geothermal, Ocean Thermal, Fossil, Nuclear coinciding with those of CONRT.
