Abstract

A novel air side heat transfer enhancement strategy is firstly developed by employing self-agitator to enhance mixing. The developed self-agitator oscillates itself in the channel without consuming additional power due to fluid structure interaction. Numerical method for self-agitator simulation is developed and verified with experimental results. Self-agitator can enhance the heat transfer up to 40% comparing with clean channel at the same pumping power.
