An experimental study was conducted to investigate the heat transfer & friction loss characteristics in a heat sink channel with various geometrical configurations under constant heat flux conditions. The experiments are performed for the Reynolds number and heat flux in the ranges of 300 to 900 and 1.50-5.50kw/m2, respectively. The heat sink with two different channel heights and two different channel widths are accomplished. Different geometrical configurations parameters effect of the microchannel and heat flux on the heat transfer haracteristics and pressure drop are considered. For those configurations the average heat transfer coefficient and Nusselt number were determined experimentally. The micro-channel geometry configuration has significant effect on the enhancement heat transfer and pressure drop. The results of this study are expected to lead to guidelines that will allow the design of the micro-channel heat exchangers with improved heat transfer performance of the electronic devices.
