Heat dissipation is a drastic issue to tackle due to continued integration, miniaturization, compacting and lightening of equipment. Heat dissipaters are not only chosen for their thermal performance; but also for other design parameters that includes weight, cost and reliability, depending on application. The present paper represents a review study to investigate the heat transfer enhancement of rectangular heat sinks with lateral perforation by forced convection. It is observed that the Reynolds number and number of perforations have a larger impact on Nusselt number for the both type of perforations.
