This paper presents a design study of the geometry of the ports on a layered core heat exchanger, which is used in automotive engines. Using fluid dynamics, and fluid computational programs, the performance characteristics of a double boss port design was obtained as well as a single boss port design. The two designs were compared, and an optimized design shall be proposed. This optimization study compares the fluid flow and overall heat transfer of the layered core heat exchanger.
