    Abstract: Dimples play a very important role in heat transfer enhancement of electronic cooling systems. This work mainly deals with experimental investigation of forced convection heat transfer over square shaped dimples on a flat aluminum plate under external laminar flow conditions. Experimental measurements on heat transfer rate and friction characterist... Show More
