Experimental results for the measurement of heat transfer rates in microchannel gas flow are crucial for gas to gas micro heat exchangers. A critical overview of the main factors that play an important role in the determination of heat transfer rate is presented. The experimental and numerical data obtained from authors' previous studies are used in order to highlight the characteristics of convective heat transfer of gas through microchannels with constant wall temperature. It is suggested to obtain heat transfer rates by determining the difference between the gas enthalpy at the inlet and outlet by measuring local temperature and pressure. The heat transfer rates obtained in the present study were compared with those determined by the difference in total temperatures and incompressible flow Nusselt number.
