Abstract [en]

A variety of materials for high temperature applications were studied. Best materials forconstructing heat exchangers were selected using models based on preferential weights. Currentadditive manufacturing techniques and industries were also studied and rated to determine thebest materialprintingtechniquecombination. Although the rating models do not include everyimportant criterion, the results were expected to be the same if the state of the 3D manufacturingindustries and user preferences do not change. Design recommendations for a compact airtoairheat exchanger were made without considering manufacturing limitations. An economicalassessment of 3D manufacturing techniques was made to determine whether 3D manufacturingcould be a better alternative for heat exchangers. Although very promising, the choice to printheat exchangers with 3D techniques would not be economical at the moment. Future predictionsof the additive manufacturing industry were made having studied related industries.
