Thermo-hydraulic numerical analysis has been carried out
to compare the characteristics of various shaped channels with
two kinds of coolants such as EGW (EthyleneGlycol/Water)
and PAO (PolyalphaOlefin).
In this study, single-phase, constant property and threedimensional
laminar forced convections are considered, and the
governing differential equations for continuity, momentum, and
energy transfer are solved computationally using the finitevolume
method and the commercial codes of ICEPAK and
The variations of the maximum temperatures as well as the
temperature difference on the heat source surface with pumping
power are compared depending on the coolants and channels.
Papers presented to the 12th International Conference on Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics, Costa de Sol, Spain on 11-13 July 2016.
