This project shows Simscape's and MATLAB's capability to size a heat exchanger and its feeds system for desired performance parameters.
Updated 8 Sep 2023


This project showcases my work done for a summer internship sponsored by MathWorks, which aimed to validate the use of Simscape for sizing multiple components simultaneously.

It includes a modified heat exchanger and pipe block which find the geometry of the components for desired performance parameters. A multiobjective optimizer was then implemented to find tradeoffs and streamline the design process.

Start by opening the 'pipe_and_hx.slx' model. The comments and descriptions inside the code and model will allow you to navigate.

The completion of this project would not have been possible without the support of Dr Christopher Clark and Dr Lachlan Jardine, for which I am extremely grateful.
