Smart Wall Pipes and ducts (SWaP)
Hendricks, Nicholas R.
Freedom of design, complex shapes, on demand production are a few of the new possibilities that additive manufacturing is providing for many applications/fields. In particular, the field of thermal management systems is requiring more complex geometries to meet the increasing demands on thermal budgets. However, as systems become more complex so too does the measurement of fluid properties. Here, Smart Wall Pipes and ducts (SWaP) has developed revolutionary components with integrated sensing capabilities, which have been created solely by 3D printing techniques, to measure fundamental fluids properties of circulating fluids where the results are comparable to that of commercially available sensors.
