Dimples play a very important role in heat transfer enhancement of electronic cooling systems, heat exchangers etc. This work mainly deals with the experimental investigation of forced convection heat transfer over circular shaped dimples of different diameters on a flat copper plate under external laminar flow conditions. Experimental measurements on heat transfer characteristics of air (with various inlet flow rates) on a flat plate with dimples were conducted. From the obtained results, it was observed that the heat transfer coefficient and Nusselt number were high for the copper plate in which the diameter of dimples increases centrally in the direction of flow (case c) as compared to the other two cases.
