Abstract:

Convective heat transfer characteristics of a liquid cooled rectangular channel, containing offset plate fins were investigated experimentally. The selected geometry was a 10x model of the fluid circulation passages in the commercially available SEM-E type electronic cooling modules. The test surface containing fins was made of aluminum and was heated at its base by a thermofoil heater. The Reynolds numbers were varied between 100-800, with water as the cooling fluid. Surface temperature measurements on the heated surface were used to determine the Colburn j factor. The effects of natural convection were also investigated. Offset plate fins.
