Heat transport in microchannels is experimentally investigated to explore the validity of classical correlations for conventional-sized rectangular channels in predicting the thermal behavior and the onset of transition in microchannels. The microchannels considered range in width from 194 μm to 534 μm, with the channel depth being nominally five times the width in each case. Ten microchannels were machined into a 2.54 cm by 2.54 cm copper substrate for each test piece. The experiments were conducted with deionized water, with the Reynolds number ranging from approximately 300 to 3500. The results show that the heat transfer in microchannels is satisfactorily predicted with a classical, continuum approach. However, the applicable classical correlations need to be chosen carefully to match the boundary and entrance length conditions imposed in the experiment.
