History , Advances , and Challenges in Liquid Flow and Flow Boiling Heat Transfer in Microchannels : A Critical Review

  title={History , Advances , and Challenges in Liquid Flow and Flow Boiling Heat Transfer in Microchannels : A Critical Review},
  author={Satish G. Kandlikar},
As the scale of devices becomes small, thermal control and heat dissipation from these devices can be effectively accomplished through the implementation of microchannel passages. The small passages provide a high surface area to volume ratio that enables higher heat transfer rates. High performance microchannel heat exchangers are also attractive in applications where space and/or weight constraints dictate the size of a heat exchanger or where performance enhancement is desired.
