Matrix heat exchangers are used in a number of applications such as helium liquefiers, sorption refrigerators, and in Kleemenko cryocoolers. In this paper the methods for the optimum sizing of balanced flow and unbalanced flow matrix heat exchangers of rectangular and circular shapes are presented. Using the methods developed, the relative size of matrix heat exchangers of rectangular and circular shapes are compared. [S0022-1481(00)01503-6]
