Micro heat sinks play an important role in the cooling process of many different 
microelectronic devices including and not limited to computers, mobile phones, 
robotics, micro solar cell, autonomous vehicles and electric cars. One of the 
approaches introduced to improve heat sinks' performance is adding nanofluids (a 
carrier fluid and a small volumetric fraction of nanoparticles that enhances 
heat transfer considerably).

The main aim of this project is to develop a mathematical model and numerical 
method using the Lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) for studying micro heat sinks 
with different configurations of micro pin fins and various kinds of nanofluids. 
LBM is a powerful mesoscopic numerical method for the simulation of complex 
fluid flows.

To study and simulate this problem a basic knowledge of heat and mass transfer, 
nanofluid, porous media, rheology, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and LBM 
is required.

Applicants should review the Higher Degree by Research minimum entry
