Mathematical evaluation is done by using Matlab and two parameters such as the porosity and thermal diffusivity of the fluid in a porous fin is done for satisfying a given temperature distribution. In order to derive heat transfer equation, energy balance and Darcy model are used Only three temperature measurements are assumed to be available on the surface of the fin and prediction of the parameters is calculated by using energy balance to the A domain decomposition method of porous fin. It is shown that the present problem is inherently ill-posed in terms of the retrieval of the value of fluid thermal diffusivity for which many possible solutions exist, which is expected to adapt the fin under different profiles. In the present work, two numerical examples provide thermal distribution into the problem of designing porous fins using good thermal conductors like aluminum and along with the working of ADM (Adomain Decomposition Method). Finally, the efficiency of ADM for the present problem is also shown by comparing its performance with few other optimization methods.
