MODELLING OF HIGH-SPEED JET COOLING ON MICROSCALE Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • In the present work, experimental and numerical studies were performed in order to investigate the cooling performance of a single-phase flow in micro-channel/slot-jet system. A three-dimensional numerical model of jet cooling was developed and implemented using commercial software ANSYS Fluent. The 3D conjugate conduction/convection heat transfer in the micro-channel simulations were used to complement experiments and to obtain detailed flow patterns of the jet, temperature, and heat flux distribution on the heater area, and fluid temperature distribution. The model has been verified in a preliminary study where its time-step and grid independency was established and validated vs. experiments.
