Numerical method based on the finite element method is utilized to study the heat transfer enhancement from discrete heat sources using a wavy channel. The considered geometry consists of a channel formed by two wavy plates with six discrete heat sources placed on upper and lower walls. The effect of the Reynolds number, Prandtl number, waviness of the wavy wall, and the location of the heat sources on the heat transfer out of the heat sources is investigated. The result indicates that the wavy channel significantly enhances the heat flow out of the heat sources, and heat sources located at the minimum cross section areas of the channel shows the best performance. The heat transfer enhancement can reaches as high as 120% for high Reynolds numbers and waviness of the channel.
