This study investigates the thermal performance of a parallel strip fin heat sink (PSFHS) under various heat flux conditions at a flowrate of 100 ml/min, including uniform heat flux and nonuniform heat flux. The heat sink consists of 150 fins with a width of 1 mm, a height of 5.5 mm, and a pitch of 1 mm and has a Z-type inlet/outlet arrangement. Nine separate heaters offer thermal load to the heat sink in order to provide a uniform or nonuniform heat flux. The flow boiling process is captured by a high-speed camera. The temperatures of the heaters have been measured under the uniform and nonuniform heat flux conditions. In addition, the pressure drops inside the heat sink are also obtained. A minichannel heat sink (MCHS) with the same channel dimensions and inlet/outlet configuration is tested too. A comparison between MCHS and PSFHS is discussed in detail, which helps to understand the flow boiling characteristic in PSFHS.
