Article Preview

This study combined the numerical analysis and experimental measurement to investigate the conjugate conduction and natural convection for a block heat source module in a three-dimensional cabinet filled and surrounded by air. The effects of Rayleigh number Ra, module position C1, ratio of block to air thermal conductivities Kbf, and ratio of board to air thermal conductivities Kpf are examined. Moreover, efforts are carried out to explore the influence of thermal interaction between the air streams inside and outside the cabinet.
