Experimental and Numerical Investigation of Heat Removal by Microjets Academic Article uri icon


  • In an ongoing collaborative work, experimental and numerical studies are performed to investigate the cooling ability of single-phase microjets of various configurations. Experimental studies include manufacturing and testing of microdevices. Three-dimensional numerical models of jet cooling are developed and implemented using commercial software ANSYS® Fluent. The simulations are used to reproduce the experimental conditions and to obtain detailed flow fields of the jet, heat flux, and temperature distribution on the impingement area, temperature distribution in the fluid, and heat transfer coefficients at the heated surface.
