This study provides answers the following question: what is the best geometry for a required level of the heat exchange, taking into account the fluid pumping power? This study shows that there exists a minimum of the fluid pumping power for the optimal heat exchanged along a stream network composed by a bundle of parallel tubes. This optimization opportunity was applied to networks under laminar and turbulent flow regime.
