Abstract—Electronic systems cooling is an attractive research area in engineering. The aim of this research is to design vortex promoters for cooling of electronic equipment. Different shapes of vortex promoters are used in the experimental study for turbulent flow and the results are used to validate the results of a previous computational work performed by the authors. Another aim is to choose an appropriate promoter and promoter location which provides best turbulence effects and most effective cooling. Temperature values are measured with thermocouples at several monitoring locations. The results show that the most effective vortex promoter for cooling is triangular type of promoter for the flow conditions tested.
Index Terms—Electronic cooling, experimental study, turbulent flow, vortex promoter.
