Scholarcy highlights

  • The heat transfer and flow characteristics of oblique finned microchannel heat sink with a dimension of 48 × 80 mm were investigated experimentally with different channel cross-sections
  • The three-channel cross sections were namely trapezoidal, square and semi-circle is analyzed by using Al2O3/water nanofluid with 0.25% volume fraction and water as a coolant
  • The experiments were performed with a constant mass flow rate of 0.1 LPM and varying heat flux ranging from 5.5 to 26.5 kW/m2
  • The result shows that trapezoidal cross-section performs better and it provides 8.5 and 10.3% increased heat transfer rate than square and semi-circle cross sections respectively. It gives 6.6 and 8.2% increase in friction factor than square and semi-circle respectively
