Numerical studies of unsteady heat transfer in grooved channel flows are made. The flows are of special relevance to electronic systems. Predictions suggest a commonly used periodic flow assumption (for modeling rows of similar electronic components) may not be valid over a significant system extent. It is found that the downstream flow development is strongly dependent on geometry.
