Microchannelsare being used in many fields like heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration, automobiles, biomedical mechanical applications etc. When there are various shapes of microchannels like rectangle, straight channel, segmented, cylindrical, triangle, square are available, most of the manufacturers desire to use rectangle shape as they are simple in design and easy to manufacture. In this study we are comparing the rectangular shape to triangular shape and see which is beneficial for a manufacturer by analysing their performance characteristics using some parameters like heat flux ranging from 100-500kw/m2, temperature ranging from 100-500K and Reynolds number ranging from 100-500. The work is done using ANSYS software which delivers product modelling solutions with unmatched scalability.
