Special Heat Transfer by Fin-Liquid System

Cooling electronics by natural convection

Electronic components often require cooling to enhance the lifespan. Additive Manufacturing (AM) provides the opportunity to come up with creative designs of heat transfer systems. In this particular project we wish to explore the effectiveness of low-cost solutions using AM in a fin-liquid system, combining metal and plastic with the usage of natural convection.
