...Giulio Lorenzini; Roberta Lima Corrêa; Elizaldo Domingues dos Santos; Luiz Alberto Oliveira Rocha Constructal design is a method that conducts the designer toward flow (e.g., heat flux) architectures that have greater global performance. This numerical work uses this method to seek for the best...
