Air-Water Heat Exchanger Lab In this lab, YOU will design, conduct, and analyze your experiment. The lab handout will not tell you exactly what to measure or calculate! You will use an air-water heat exchanger testing unit to verify the energy balance and determine important heat exchanger parameters for a variety of CFM.

Design of Experiments “Design of experiments (DEX or DOE) is a systematic, rigorous approach to engineering problem-solving that applies principles and techniques at the data collection stage so as to ensure the generation of valid, defensible, and supportable engineering conclusions. In addition, all of this is carried out under the constraint of a minimal expenditure of engineering runs, time, and money. “ http://www.itl.nist.gov/div898/handbook/pmd/section3/pmd31.htm
