The new thermal management models of linear compressors have been recently reported. These models adopt the simplified transient flow effects to shorten the excessive analysis time. Among the unsteady flow effects of the linear compressor, the effect of the gap flow between the compressor housing and the body due to the body vibration on the heat transfer performance was studied in this paper. For this study, a numerical analysis for the unsteady axisymmetric flows was performed by using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics). The results show that the high-speed refrigerant flows occurred in the gap between the compressor housing and the body, which contribute to increasing the heat transfer from high temperature refrigerants in the housing to the outside air. In addition, as the gap decreases, the refrigerant flow rate through the gap increases and the heat transfer rate increases as well.
Abstract The increase of the superheat is one of several factors adversely affecting the efficiency of the refrigeration cycle. To this end, it is important to release the heat inside the compressor. Therefore, in this paper, we have increased the convective heat transfer coefficient inside the compressor by utilizing the vibration of the moving part of the compressor. The results show that reducing the gap between the shell and the moving part increases the flow velocity in the gap resulting in the increase of convective heat transfer coefficient.
In recent years, technology has been developed the way the volume of the portable communication device is reduced but its performance is maintained. The COF(Chip On Film) packaging method is used due to the densification of the lead pitch, especially for the display driver IC. During COF packaging, lead break and film detachment could occur by the high bonding temperature and pressure, and possibility for lead interference can emerge by deformation of leads. In this study, a new double-column arrangement of leads is considered to increase lead density further than the existing zigzag arrangement of leads, and nonlinear structural analysis was carried out to examine whether the interference can occur. The results showed that stress and deformation of the corner region appear relatively higher than those of central region, and interference did not occur by the lead strain for the double-column arrangement of leads with pitch of 25μm. Therefore, double-column lead arrangement can improve lead density by about 176% compared to the zigzag lead arrangement
