The paper proposes the use of Taichi principle by detecting the emergence of distinct Yin-Yang diagram for optimal heat exchanger design with the verification of the field synergy principle. By rotating the outer annular shell of the system and locating a pair of heat source and heat sink at both fish eyes, the heat can be transmitted from the hot eye to the cold eye. As the flow field of air is under the Reynolds number of 47.2, a well-distributed Yin-Yang diagram of distinct Taichi totem is emerged from the temperature contours of this heat exchanger, and that happens to be of the synergy optimization of both heat and flow fields with a minimal friction loss. Thus, it has been confirmed that the harmonious Yin-Yang diagram of Taichi totem can be used as a design criterion for the best performance of circular saucer shell type convective heat exchangers.
