Analysis of laminar flow and heat transfer in an interrupted microchannel heat sink with different shaped ribs
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
A numerical study was conducted to investigate the mechanism of laminar flow and heat transfer enhancement in an interrupted microchannel heat sink (IMCHS) with different shaped ribs at Reynolds number ranging from 100 to 900. The global flow features, heat transfer and friction for IMCHS with no ribs, rectangle ribs, triangle ribs and trapezoid ribs are detailed compared. The results show that the local heat transfer and friction performance of IMCHS with ribs show significant increase at the windward side of the ribs. Additionally, the smaller the chamfer of ribs, the larger average heat transfer and friction performance. For IMCHS with rectangle ribs, the maximum increment of Nu and f can reach to 1.81 and 2.59, respectively. Concerning the overall heat transfer performance (PEC), the trapezoid ribs show the best behavior with PEC = 1.65–1.38 at Re = 100–900.
