Short summary
This paper presents a numerical investigation in which thermal performance characteristics of pin fin heat sinks enhanced with phase-change materials (PCM) designed for electronic devices cooling are studied. The main purpose of this article is to investigate different effective parameters on the heat sink base temperature and melt fraction. The studied geometric parameters are the number, thickness and height of fins.
