Abstract: Confined bubble growth during flow boiling at low pressures in microchannels generates pressure fluctuations that may cause transient flow reversals that disturb the flow distribution in heat sinks formed of parallel channels joined by plena. A simple model is developed for the effects of upstream compressibility and flow resistance at the channel inlet on the magnitude of the pressure transient during the growth of one bubble in a single channel. Preliminary results are presented.
