The Characterization of Heat Transfer in a Microchannel Heat Exchanger Exposed to Electromagnetic Radiation
MetadataShow full item record
Beamed energy is a potential power source for a variety of applications. One of the potential applications is using beamed energy as a power source for a heat exchanger. Analysis of such a system requires coupling the electromagnetic response with the thermal response. A microchannel heat exchanger exposed to high frequency electromagnetic waves has been modeled to determine the wall heating due to the application of electromagnetic radiation. This was accomplished by coupling ANSYS HFSS and ANSYS Fluent software programs. The exit temperatures achievable as well as the thermal variations ...
