Experiments are performed to study the single-phase transient forced convection heat transfer on an array of 4×1 flush-mounted discrete heat sources in a vertical rectangular channel during the pump-on transient operation. Water is the coolant media and the flow covers the wide range of laminar flow regime with Reynolds number, based on heat source length, from 800 to 2625. The applied uniform heat flux ranges from 1 to 7Wcm2. For flush-mounted heaters the heat transfer characteristics are studied and correlations are presented for four chips as well as for overall data in the transient regime. The experimental results indicate that the heat transfer coefficient is affected strongly by the number of chips and the Reynolds number. Finally the general impacts of heat source protrusions (B=1, 2 mm) on heat transfer behavior of four chips are investigated by comparing the results obtained from flush-mounted (B=0) heaters.
