That MINIMUM QUANTITY LUBRICATION funny stuff is sure relevant. Or not so much?

I am not making these things up, Dan Wang et al. did that.

Several research studies have been conducted to investigate the effects of pin-fin shapes [1–3], splitters [4–7], fin height (or tip clearance) [8–12], fin arrangements [13–18], MCHS [micro-channel heat sinks] geometry [19–20], using phase change materials (PCMs) [21–24], and nanoparticle concentration (φ) on the hydrothermal performance of the MCHSs. In addition, the performance of MCHSs was evaluated by different parameters such as first law and second law efficiencies, performance evaluation criterion (PEC) factor, and the entropy generation analysis [25–29].
