In this paper, the heat transfer and hydrodynamics of the liquid metal alloy in the vascular-like microchannel networks based cooling system are numerically investigated and compared with the corresponding coolant by water. The whole microchannel networks are composed of two vascular-like networks which are vertically connected with each other. Each vascular-like network has a single inlet or outlet channel, and uniformly bifurcates over many distributed levels’ microchannels. The vascular-like networks combined with liquid metal alloy are used to design the high efficiency thermal management system for Electronics.
