In this paper study the heat transfer rate in a branched and rectangular micro channel. Using the aspect ratio of height and width were 1:1 for straight channel and 0.75/1 for branched channel. This experiment was done for same convective area 60 mm2. This experiment was study how to affect the aspect ratio to temperature drop. The change of effect the aspect ratio we are found by simulation by using the other branch channel aspect ratio (1) or straight micro channel aspect ratio (1.37) and the same area 47mm2. These different aspect ratio straight and branched channels compare to each other. Then studied after this experimental data as a function of aspect ratio increase the 20% of friction constant evidence at low aspect ratio. Then the wall temperature is carried 92⁰c and heating the heat sink at 90 watts. Using the convective heat transfer in the micro-channel. Study the effect of varying aspect ratio for both branched and rectangular micro-channel has analysed in this study and experimentally performed. Analysis of heat transfer by varying the Nusselt number. The effect of varying Nusselt number or temperature difference on both straight micro-channels and branched micro-channel was studied.
