This is a concept that includes a manufacturing process in the construction and assembly of multiple rows and multiple tubes in face of Heat Pipes. The introduction of stamped obstructions in the airflow and the heat transfer rate increases as opposed to no induced obstructions.

There are a multitude of variables in this concept:
Temperatures
Velocity of air flows
Number of rows
Number of TIF

To get more quantitative results like pressure drop, flow rate etc the use of SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation program is required.

SOLIDWORKS FLOXPRESS @ 300 DEG

SOLIDWORKS FloXpress is a first pass qualitative flow analysis tool which gives insight into water or air flow inside your SOLIDWORKS model. This model is shown with unrestricted supply airflow, and unrestricted exhaust flow and an no obstruction induced during the manufacturing process of the top and bottom plates.
