This paper presents a numerical study of the melting process of a phase change material for the cooling of a heat source “electronic component”. The latter is protruding and mounted on a substrate "motherboard" in the center of the bottom wall of a rectangular enclosure. The enclosure is filled completely with PCM. A 2D non-dimensional mathematical model is developed based on the conservation equations of mass, momentum and energy. The enclosure aspect ratio ‘A’ effect on the thermal and hydrodynamic behavior of the PCM-based heat sink is investigated.
Key words: Melting / PCM / Natural convection / Cooling
