An analytical approach for the optimal design of 2D cellular metallic structures for heat sink applications is proposed. By integrating fin analogy model into intersection-of-asymptotes method, both the conjugate conduction-convection heat transfer mechanism and the developing flow/temperature fields are considered in this approach. Results are reported nondimensionally for three different flow configurations: fixed mass flowrate, fixed pressure drop and fixed pumping power.
