Study of fluid flow characteristics at microscale is gaining importance with shrinking device sizes. Better understanding of fluid flow and heat transfer in microchannels will have important implications in electronic chip cooling, heat exchangers, MEMS, and microfluidic devices. Due to short lengths employed in microchannels, entrance header effects can be significant and need to be investigated. In this work, three dimensional model of microchannels, with aspect ratios (a1⁄4 a/b) ranging from… CONTINUE READING
