Three-dimensional models of porous-microchannel heat sinks (porous-MCHSs) with different configuration designs, such as rectangular, outlet enlargement, trapezoidal, thin rectangular, block, and sandwich distributions, are verified in this work. Hydraulic and thermal performances of the porous-MCHSs with various configuration designs are investigated from the pumping power, heat transfer coefficient, and temperature control effectiveness, results with Reynolds number ranging from 45 to 1350. The results reveal that the thermal performances can be improved using the porous configuration designs and can increase with a large Reynolds number. Both the sandwich and the trapezoidal distribution designs have the best heat transfer efficiency, cooling performance, and convective performance. In particular, the thermal performance of the rectangular, outlet enlargement, thin rectangular, or block distribution designs are not necessarily better than the nonporous medium for lower pumping power. In addition, adding a porous medium to the channel leads to a significant increase in the pressure drop. Among the six porous configuration designs, the lowest pressure drop was observed for a sandwich distribution design. Hence, the sandwich distribution design is the best porous-MCHS design when considering the thermal performance along with the pressure drop.
A three-dimensional (3D) fluid flow and heat transfer models are proposed to investigate the effects of the configuration designs on the thermal performance of porous-microchannel heat sinks (porous-MCHSs), as shown in Fig. 1.

Figure options Much research has been performed to determine how the configuration design of porous channels can improve the cooling performance. The configuration designs include the rectangular duct, partially porous or rectangular channel with bypass spaces, porous plate channel, porous block, and porous-baffled channel , , , ,  and . However, comparisons between the thermal performances of different configuration designs are limited. Singh et al. examined sintered porous heat sinks for cooling high-powered compact microprocessors . They determined that the thermal resistance can be reduced by 44%. Forced convection inside porous rectangular ducts was studied by Calmidi and Mahajan  and Haji-Sheikh et al. . Zehforoosh and Hossainpour numerically investigated the laminar forced convection in partially porous channels using four different porous blocks attached to strip heat sources at the bottom wall . They found that the heat transfer enhancement was nearly identical to the porous duct, whereas the total pressure drop was considerably lower. Jeng et al. experimentally determined the fluid flow and heat transfer characteristics of a porous heat sink set inside a rectangular channel with bypass spaces . Tamayol et al. investigated the pressure drop in microfluidic minichannels filled with porous media formed by square arrays of microcylinders . They found that the main parameters for affecting the pressure drop are the porous medium permeability and channel dimensions. Alfieri et al. performed a fundamental hydrothermal investigation on the next generation of interlayer integrated water cooled 3D chip stacks with high volumetric heat generation . They observed that the local chip temperature predictions can be affected by up to 40%. The Reynolds number (Re) was found to have a strong influence on the development length and the micropin structure was found to have good cooling capability. Wan et al.  proposed a novel thermal management method for high-power light-emitting diodes (LEDs) using a porous micro heat-sink system. The predicted results showed that the thermal performance of the LED chips can be effectively improved. They also found that increasing the liquid velocity enhances the average heat transfer coefficient and overall pressure loss of the heat sink increases with increasing inlet velocity. Turbulent forced convection heat transfer inside a rectangular channel with porous baffles periodically arranged on the top and bottom of the channel walls was investigated by Yang and Hwang . They found that the ducts with porous-type baffles experienced a lower friction factor and enhanced the heat transfer relative to the smooth channel. The forced convection heat transfer inside the channels filled with sintered bronze media was experimentally and numerically examined by Jiang et al.  and . Their results showed that the heat transfer inside the sintered porous-channel was better than the non-porous channel. Ould-Amer et al.  found that the insertion of porous materials between the heat-generating blocks increased the average Nusselt number up to 50% and reduced the maximum temperatures within the heated block. Hetsroni et al. experimentally determined the heat transfer and pressure drop inside a rectangular channel with sintered porous stainless steel inserts of different porosities to cool mini-devices . They found that the porosity could negatively influence the heat transfer. Tzeng and Jeng reported that the cooling performance of heat sink with uncompressed porous media was better than the compressed media . The effects of bead particle size on the efficiency of heat exchange between the fluid and the solid phases of the heat sink were experimentally determined by Tzeng et al. . They found that for smaller particle sizes, the overall wall temperature distribution was prominent. The forced convection inside a rectangular microchannel filled with or without a porous medium was analytically examined by Hooman . The expressions for the friction factor and Nusselt number were proposed in terms of key parameters. Yucel and Guven numerically analyzed the laminar forced convection inside a channel with a porous medium on the bottom wall . They found that a channel with a high thermal conductivity porous cover can significantly enhance the heat transfer from the solid blocks. Venugopal et al. experimentally determined the potential of a simple, inexpensive porous insert developed specifically for augmenting the heat transfer from the heated walls of a vertical duct under forced-flow conditions . They found that the average Nusselt number increased 4.52 times compared with a clear flow when a porous material with porosity 0.85 is employed. Convective heat transfer inside a channel partially filled with a porous medium was examined by Aguilar-Madera et al. . Their results showed that the thermal performance can be improved by either increasing the size of the porous insert or by ensuring that mixing inside the channel is favored over mixing outside the channel. Badruddin et al.  numerically studied the heat transfer characteristics inside a porous duct and showed that the heat transfer increases with increasing cavity height along the duct vertical. The above literature review shows that the fluid flow and heat transfer inside porous ducts can be improved using proper configuration designs. However, there is only a limited amount of work that has been completed on the effects of different configuration designs on the channel thermal performances, especially for the effect of trapezoidal and sandwich configuration designs. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to create 3D computer models of MCHSs with six different porous configuration designs. The effects of the configuration designs on the fluid flow and thermal performance are investigated in detail.

In this work, a 3D MCHS computational model is proposed to determine the effects of porous configuration designs on the thermal performances of porous MCHS. Six different porous configuration designs including a rectangular, outlet enlargement, trapezoidal, thin rectangular, block, and sandwich distributions, were tested and compared. The conclusions drawn from the predicted results are as follows: (1) Adding a porous medium to the channel leads to an increased pressure drop. The lowest pressure drop was for the porous MCHS with sandwich distribution design from among the six configuration designs considered. (2) The sandwich or trapezoidal distribution design provides a lower temperature rise due to its higher coolant velocity or lower pressure drop. (3) Most of the thermal performances can be improved using the porous configuration designs with a larger Reynolds number. (4) The sandwich and trapezoidal distribution designs have the best heat transfer efficiency and cooling performance. In particular, the thermal performance for rectangular, outlet enlargement, thin rectangular, or block distribution designs are not necessarily better than the nonporous medium under lower pumping power. This may be due to the fact that the pumping power could not overcome the larger pressure drop induced by these porous distribution designs for lower pumping powers. (5) When considering the thermal performance along with the pressure drop, the sandwich distribution design is the best porous-MCHS design from among the six configuration designs considered.
