Model optimization of dry-out heat flux from micropillar wick structures

Abstract

Capillary-driven thin film evaporation in wick structures is promising for thermal management of high-power electronics because it harnesses the latent heat of evaporation without the use of an external pumping power. The complexities associated with liquid-vapor interface and liquid flow through the wick structures, however, make it challenging to optimize… (More)
