The design of high strength brazed joints in heat exchangers is critical to the manufacturer and user for efficient manufacturing and satisfactory performance. Material selection, geometric considerations, heat treating recipe, engineering analysis and material testing play critical roles in designing a brazed joint to meet good engineering design requirements. The engineering design is an international problem and all manufacturers require similar methodology including testing before and after brazing. This paper addresses an engineering approach to designs that can be tested, analyzed, documented and monitored during operation. Examples of choosing materials, designing geometry, determining heat treating, engineering analysis and material testing are given. The final product design must satisfy good engineering methodology and perform satisfactorily over the expected life.
