Optimized Longitudinal-Fin Heat Sinks Accounting for Non-Uniform Heat Transfer Coefficient.

Karamanis, Georgios.

Abstract: An optimization method is presented to determine the optimal fin spacing and thickness of a fully-shrouded longitudinal-fin heat sink (LFHS) with an isothermal base that minimize its thermal resistance under conditions of hydrodynamically and thermally fully developed laminar flow. The thermal resistance of the LFHS is expressed in a dimensionless form that allows it to be calculated alg... read more
