  1. 1. Turbulent Forced Convection Air Cooling of Electronics with Heat Sinks Under Flow Bypass Conditions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Hans Jonsson; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; forced convection; heat transfer; pressure drop; turbulent; air cooling; bypass; plate; strip; pin; fin; heat sink; electronics; experimental; numerical; CFD; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Air cooling is still the dominant method for dissipating theheat produced by electronic components. In a typical electronicdevice, the components are situated on a Printed Circuit Board(PCB). For most applications natural convection is sufficientto cool the components. READ MORE

  2. 2. Distribution of Ventilation Air and Heat by Buoyancy Forces inside Buildings An Experimental Study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Claes Blomqvist; Högskolan i Gävle.; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Building engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Byggnadsteknik; building ventilation; thermal forces; buoyancy; gravity currents; large openings; heating; air quality; forced convection; free convection;

    Abstract : The main task of the ventilation system in a building is to maintain the air quality and (together with the heating or cooling system) the thermal climate at an acceptable level within the building. This means that a sufficient amount of ventilation air at the appropriate temperature and quality must be supplied to satisfy thermal comfort and air quality demands and that this air is distributed to the parts of the building where people reside.

  4. 4. Prediction of forced convection heat transfer to Lead-Bismuth-Eutectic

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Roman Thiele; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lead-bismuth-eutectic; Forced convective heat transfer; Turbulence-modeling; GEN-IV reactors;

    Abstract : The goal of this work is to investigate the capabilities of two different commercial codes, OpenFOAM and ANSYS CFX, to predict forced convection heat transfer in low Prandtl number fluids and investigate the sensitivity of these predictions to the type of code and to several input parameters.The goal of the work is accomplished by predicting forced convection heat transfer in two different experimental setups with the codes OpenFOAM and ANSYS CFX using three different turbulence models and varying the input parameters in an extensive sensitivity analysis.

  5. 5. On the fluid mechanics of electrochemical coating and spray painting

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Mekanik

    Author : Pedro Olivas; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : mass transfer; electrochemical coating; ion transport; forced convection; diffusion; magnetoelectrolysis; electrolyte; limiting current; numerical simulation;

    Abstract : Finite-volume methods have been used for modeling of fluidflows involved in forced convection electrochemical coating androtating spray painting systems. Electrodeposition on a singlecircular cylinder under forced convection for Reynolds numbers10 and 200 was simulated. READ MORE
