Mitigation of “hot spots” in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) employing in situ microchannel systems requires a comprehensive picture of the maldistribution of the working fluid and uniformity of cooling within the same. In this paper, detailed simulations employing parallel microchannel systems with specialized manifold-channel configurations, i.e., U, I, and Z, have been performed. Eulerian-Lagrangian discrete phase model (DPM) and effective property model with water and alumina-water…
