The Mitigation of the Flow Maldistribution in Minichannel and Minigap Heat Exchangers by Introducing Threshold in the ManifoldsPublication
In the present paper, a detailed numerical investigation has been carried out to analyze the flow maldistribution in 50 parallel rectangular cross-section (1 mm depth and 1 mm width) minichannels and minigap section (1 mm depth and 99 mm width) with rectangular/trapezoidal manifolds in Z-type flow configuration. The author carried out numerical investigation with various mass flowrates, namely 0.05 kg/s, 0.1 kg/s and 0.2 kg/s which...
Channel Blockage and Flow Maldistribution during Unsteady Flow in a Model Microchannel Plate heat ExchangerPublication
This paper describes the problem of channel blockage as a result of flow maldistribution between the channels of a model mini channel plate heat exchanger consisting of one pass on each leg. Each leg of the heat exchanger contains 51 parallel and rectangular minichannels of four hydraulic diameters namely 461 μm, 571 μm, 750 μm and 823 μm. In addition, a more complex geometry has been investigated where for the sake of breaking...
