Many nuclear engineering applications, current and future, require heat exchangers operating at high temperatures. The operating conditions and performance requirements of these heat exchangers present special design challenges. This paper considers these challenges with respect to a simple heat exchanger design manufactured of a novel carbon material. Heat transfer and effectiveness calculations are performed for several parametric studies regarding heat exchanger parameters. These results are used to better understand the design challenges of high temperature heat exchangers as well as provide a starting point for future optimization work on more complex heat exchanger designs.
