In this paper recent works from the areas of entropy generation minimization and constructal theory are extended and combined with previous works from the area of physiological transport geometry prediction. From this a design methodology is developed which can be applied to branching fluid networks having the objective of maximizing the removal of heat from a given volume while minimizing the pumping power required. The methods are essentially a set of equations that serve as a resource for designers incorporating branching fluid networks as components within fluid-thermal systems that have the goal of transferring and remove heat while minimizing the entropy generation or destruction of available work.
