Multi-stable Heat Exchanger

Matthew SwabeyLaser Engraving and Cutting, Student Project

James Freeman, a Center peer mentor, is helping a student manufacture multi-stable beams. The student is researching how different styles of fins affect the heat exchange in HVAC systems. The research is being conducted at Herrick Labs on the Multistable heat exchanger fins for HVAC systems. The student used the FabLight laser to cut aluminum 6061 and is planning to use the Water Jet here at the Center to create the die for bending the sheets to an angle.
