Abstract

In this paper, the mixed convective heat transfer phenomena in a three-dimensional channel with one heating-element is studied. A general-purpose computer program is developed to analyze the flow field and temperature distribution in the channel. In order to ensure the accuracy of result, numerical computation is performed by using the alternating direction implicit (A.D.I.) method based on the SIMPLER algorithm. This paper deals with fundamental heat transfer phenomena in “L.S.I.” package, which is used extensively in microelectronic equipment. The influences of Reynolds number and Grashof number on the Nusselt number of the heating-element are discussed. In order to make it easier for readers to understand the phenomena studied in this paper, three-dimensional streaklines and three-dimensional isothermal surfaces are presented.
