We are thrilled to share that a review paper titled, ‘Additive Manufacturing of Heat Exchangers in Aerospace Applications’ has just been published in the scientific journal, Applied Thermal Engineering.
The paper comes following a great effort from our PhD student Francesco Careri, at TWI NSIRC, funded in collaboration with EPSRC CDT for Topological Design at the University of Birmingham under the supervision of Professor Moataz Attallah and Dr Raja Khan.
The review explores the new generation of heat exchangers that can be manufactured by laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF), focusing on the advantages as well as the current challenges of the additive manufacturing (AM) process.
The review also paid attention to the materials selection for additive manufacturing of heat exchangers for aerospace applications, with particular attention paid to aluminium alloys.
The work was carried out under the C-ALM AOHE (Compact- Additive Layer Manufactured Air-Oil Heat Exchanger) project funded by the European Union's H2020-CS2-CFP08-2018-01 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 831880, in collaboration with TWI and Meggitt.
