A generic finite difference-based optimization approach has been developed and applied to the entropy generation-based optimization of a practical enhanced heat transfer device. The methodology is highly general and includes a novel Taylor series-based restart procedure, which is demonstrated to greatly reduce the computational effort expended. The results of the numerical experiment considered are seen to agree with the results of analytical modeling with a high degree of accuracy.
