Experimental Studies On Combined Conduction And Convection Through Perforated Fins
Extended surfaces are prominently being used in various applications like aerospace parts design, nuclear reactors,
electronic cooling, and solar collectors for effective dissipation of heat. In view of the above it is proposed to study the
performance of perforated pin fin. Different configurations like solid pin fin, hollow pin fin, solid pin fin with four equal
perforations, solid pin fin with one large perforation, knurled fins, hollow fin with four perforations are considered for two
different convective modes viz., free and forced convection. Various experimental results obtained from the experimental set
up designed for the purpose. Detailed comparative studies were presented here.
