Abstract : The thermal performance characteristics of an electronics cooling Liquid Flow Through Module (FTM) were experimentally investigated. Different sets of experiments were conducted for each side of the FTM. A synthetic dielectric polyalphaolefin type coolant, Brayco Micronic 889, was used. Six etched foil type heaters were attached to one side of the FTM over the fluid flow path while three heaters were attached to the other side of the module. Inlet and outlet fluid temperatures as well as surface temperature data were acquired from both sides of the module for several different flow rate and power setting combinations to quantify the effectiveness of the FTM. Correlations, in terms of Reynolds and Stanton numbers were formulated according to the data for both sides of the module. (MM)
