... that the performance paradox pointed out by Bejan can be resolved. The case of a balanced counter-flow system was examined and it has been shown that a heat exchanger can be regarded as both a heat conductor and a heat insulator in terms of entropy generation. heat exchangers heat conduction thermal insulation...
