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.
