Efficient heat transfer is a critical component in various industrial processes, and heat exchangers play a pivotal role in achieving this efficiency. This report explores methods to enhance heat transfer efficiency in heat exchangers, including the utilization of advanced materials, innovative geometries, and novel heat transfer fluids. Key findings reveal the potential of high thermal conductivity materials, nanofluids, compact heat exchangers, extended surface heat exchangers, phase change materials (PCMs), and supercritical fluids to optimize heat exchange. Real-world case studies showcase the practical application of these methods in power plants, HVAC systems, and solar collectors. The report also discusses the challenges and future directions in heat exchanger technology, including material integration, environmental considerations, and the need for ongoing research and development.
