Resumen

REYES-RODRIGUEZ, Maida-Bárbara; MOYA-RODRIGUEZ, Jorge-Laureano; PEREZ-LEON, Sergio-Ramón  y  NAPOLES-RUIZ, Gonzalo. Application of the Mixed Ant Colony Method to the optimization of tube and shell heat exchangers. Ingeniería Mecánica [online]. 2014, vol.17, n.2, pp.129-137. ISSN 1815-5944.

Heat transfer processes are one of the most important problems to be solved in the field of Engineering. Among the most widely used equipment for heat transfer in the industry are the shell and tube heat exchangers. This paper develops the procedure for optimizing the design of shell and tube heat exchangers using the method of Kern and applying the ant colony algorithm. The procedure has been applied to three specific examples and the results obtained are compared with those obtained by applying other methods of artificial intelligence. The main geometric parameters of shell and tube heat exchangers are optimized, to achieve a lower cost of the exchanger. The efficacy of the new procedure MACO (Mixed Ant Colony Optimization) for the optimization process from economically point of view was demonstrated, using different case studies.
