Abstract

Due to the advancements in computing services such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, high-performance computing systems are needed. Consequently, the increase in electron chip density results in high heat fluxes and required sufficient thermal management to maintain the servers. In recent times, the liquid cooling techniques become prominent over air cooling as it has significant advantages. Spray cooling is one such efficient cooling process which can be implemented in electronics cooling. To enhance the knowledge of the process, detailed studies of fundamental mechanisms involved in spray cooling such as single droplet and multiple droplet interactions are required. The present work focuses on the study of a train of droplets impinging over a heated surface using FC-72 liquid. The surface temperature is chosen as a parameter, and the Dynamic Leidenfrost point (DLP) for the present impact conditions is identified. Spread hydrodynamics and heat transfer characteristics of these consecutively impinging droplets till the Leidenfrost temperature, are studied and compared.
