Abstract

Current methods of fabricating water-cooled plates involve "coring" by end-milling a serpentine-type channel through the plate. Such techniques are expensive and time consuming, and result in minimal water contact with the heat transfer plate. This type coring typically permits approximately 30 percent water contact with the plate to be cooled.
