Combined flow and heat transfer characterization of open cell aluminum foams
The use of open-cell metal foams have been widely increasing given by its diverse novel properties in various areas including aerospace, electronics and automotive among others. They are a relative new class of materials ...
Natural-convection heat transfer in supercritical fluids
The main objective of this study is to calculate the heat-transfer coefficients for natural convection from a heated, vertical flat plate into a supercritical fluid. In the first part of this work, an equation for the ...
Analysis of conduction heat transfer in semi-infinite slabs and infinite quadrants with discrete heat generation sources using green's function integral methods
The problem of steady state heat conduction in semi-infinite plates and infinite quadrants of constant thermal conductivity, with discrete heat generating sources and Dirichlet boundary conditions (temperature specified ...
Modelling of heat transfer in open cell metal foams
High porosity metal foams are excellent candidates for high heat dissipation. They are employed in aerospace applications mainly, but their use has been widened to include cooling in Electronic Packaging. Other important ...
Modeling of the thermal behavior of a power electronic module
This work presents a reduced mathematical model using a practical numerical formulation of the thermal behavior of an Integrated Power Electronics Module (IPEM). This model is based on the expanded Lumped Thermal Capacitance ...
