Microchannel Heat Sink, Heat Transfer Enhancement, ANSYS Fluent Training

The present problem simulates the heat transfer of water flow inside a microchannel heat sink using ANSYS Fluent software.

One of the serious problems in designing electronic equipment due to its small structure is eliminating the generated heat. This simulation investigates the thermal performance of a cylindrical microchannel heat sink for electronic equipment cooling.

This thermal sink consists of 86 microchannels with a rectangular cross-section with a hydraulic diameter of 560 micrometers around the cylindrical geometry. Water flows at a rate of 0.59 m/s, and a temperature of 297 K enters the microchannel duct.

The present model is designed in three dimensions using Design Modeler software. The model is related to a cylindrical heat sink with a microchannel. The internal radius of the model is equal to 5 mm, and its thickness is equal to 10 mm.

Due to the symmetrical structure of the geometry, only one segment of it is designed, and the periodic boundary condition is used.

We carry out the model’s meshing using ANSYS Meshing software. The mesh type is structured. The element number is 1500000.

Microchannel Methodology

The model’s central core is considered a heat source; thus, the model’s inner wall is assumed to have a constant flux boundary condition equal to 243507 W/m2.

Microchannel Heat Sink for Heat Transfer Enhancement Conclusion

At the end of the solution process, three-dimensional contours related to pressure, temperature, and velocity are obtained. These three-dimensional contours are related to the interior of the microchannel. Also, the two-dimensional temperature contour is obtained in three sections of the model.

It includes the flow of fluid inside the microchannel and the solid part of the model. It should be noted that this simulation is performed only for one segment of the model and with the periodic boundary condition.

Therefore, at the end of the work, the segment is rotated around a central axis so that the contours can be formed in three dimensions. Temperature counters show well that the solid part of the model has decreased in temperature, resulting in the cooling process.

    What a fantastic resource! The attention to detail in the use of a symmetric structure and periodic boundary conditions likely makes this complex heat transfer analysis more efficient and more accessible to study. In-depth thermal analysis within those tiny microchannels is no simple task, and mastering it is crucial for cutting-edge electronics. It’s delightful to see that the simulation also includes the visualization of temperature distribution, reflecting the heat sink’s performance. Well done!

    I’m amazed by how well you managed to simulate the heat sink with detailed geometrical consideration of microchannels. The provided structured mesh and boundary conditions undoubtedly contributed to the precise results. I’m especially curious about how you maintained a balance between computational efficiency and accuracy in your simulation.

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Thank you for your kind words. We ensure an optimal balance by carefully selecting the mesh density to be fine enough to capture the relevant physics accurately but not too dense to avoid excessive computational costs. The periodic boundary condition also allows us to simulate just one segment and accurately predict the behavior for the entire structure, enhancing computational efficiency without compromising on the accuracy of the results.

    I’m really fascinated by the concept of the microchannel heat sink method for enhancing heat transfer. How does the periodic boundary condition in this model exactly work to represent the full cylindrical geometry effectively?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The periodic boundary condition in ANSYS Fluent allows the simulation of a small, repeatable section of the full geometry to imply the behavior of the entire system. Since the microchannel heat sink has a symmetrical and repeatable pattern, you only need to simulate one segment. The periodic boundary condition mathematically enforces the continuity of flow properties (temperature, velocity, pressure, etc.) from one face of the segment to the opposite face. This creates an ‘infinite’ pattern of segments, mimicking a full cylindrical heat sink without the computational expense of modeling the entire geometry. The heat source within the central core applies consistently across all simulated periodic sections, providing accurate temperature distribution and flow characteristics for the whole system.
