Notes
1. This is a simplified tube-shell heat exchanger design
2. Material cost: use your local currency such as $/kg
3. Tube and fin material: -1 = input physical properties at bottom
4. Calculation mode: Design = calculate core length from cooling load;
    Check = calculate the cooling load from core length
