Dimples play a very important role in heat transfer enhancement of electronic cooling systems. This work mainly deals with experimental investigation of forced convection heat transfer over square shaped dimples on a flat aluminum plate under external laminar flow conditions. Experimental measurements on heat transfer rate and friction characteristics of air (with various inlet flow rates) on a flat plate were conducted. Both staggered and inline arrangements of the dimples were considered for the analysis. From the obtained results, it has been observed that the heat transfer coefficient were high for the plate having dimples.
