Abstract:

This thesis describes an experimental study of the fluid dynamics and heat transfer characteristics of Laminar air flow across cylindrical elements mounted on one wall of a vertical adiabatic channel. Various combinations of approach velocity and channel widths were employed and the variations of the row by row heat transfer coefficients between elements of the array and the air stream were determined. Keywords Heated cylindrical array Convective heat transfer from cylinders Circuit board cooling electronic cooling.
