Abstract [en]

Natural convection allows for passive cooling which isused in many engineering applications. Placing dissipatingcomponents on a common vertical heatsink can be opti-mized to give the best possible cooling capacity. In thisstudy, a numerical model for three-dimensional conjugatedconvective and conductive heat transfer was used to evalu-ate the distribution of up to 36 ush-mounted rectangularheaters. The temperature proles and the heat uxes werecompared with experimental data for validation. The dis-sipated power was set as an input parameter and the op-timal distribution was selected as the one with the lowesttemperature elevation. Two dierent heuristicsa geo-metric parameter and an articial neural networkwereproposed and evaluated as alternatives to heavy CFD cal-culations.
