Thin liquid films may provide very high heat transfer intensity and may be used for cooling of microelectronic equipment. Investigation of the influence of size of hot spots on 3-D structures, occurring at the film surface, is the main objective of the present work. Calculations were carried out for a rectangular heater of different width. It was obtained that there is a heater size effect on 3D liquid film deformations. Film pattern changes in spanwise direction with the heater size. Calculations have been done for various liquid Reynolds numbers.
