Micro channel cold plates have emerged as a cornerstone in advanced thermal management systems, especially in sectors demanding precise temperature control and high heat dissipation. These cold plates, with their intricate channel design, facilitate efficient coolant flow, thereby playing a pivotal role in controlling component temperatures. However, their performance is intrinsically tied to their structural integrity and the effects of thermal stresses. Recognizing the multifaceted challenges associated with this, our study embarks on a dual-pronged investigative approach.


By leveraging Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), we perform a transient thermal analysis on the micro channel cold plate assembly. This analysis aims to provide a dynamic snapshot of the temperature distribution, capturing the real-time thermal evolution as the system transitions through various operating conditions. Such insights are indispensable in gauging the efficacy of the cold plate and identifying potential hotspots or inefficiencies.


But understanding temperature profiles is only half the equation. The consequential structural repercussions of these thermal variations are of equal import. Hence, a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is conducted to assess the stress resulting from thermal deformations. As materials heat and cool, they expand and contract, which can introduce stress and potential points of failure.


In totality, this study synergizes the power of CFD and FEA, delving deep into the interplay between thermal dynamics and structural resilience, all aimed at ensuring the optimal performance and durability of the micro channel cold plate assembly.
