Heat Transfer, Pin Fin, various Geometry of Cavities and Projection, Grooves and Threads


In many engineering applications large quantities of heat have to be dissipated from small areas. Heat transfer by convection between a surface and the fluid surroundings it can be increased by attaching to the surface thin strips of metals called fins. The fins increase the effective area of the surface thereby increasing the heat transfer by convection. Fins are manufactured in different geometries, depending up on the practical applications. Most of the engineering problems require high performance heat transfer components with progressively less weights, volumes, accommodating shapes and costs. Extended surfaces (fins) are one of the heat exchanging devices that are employed extensively to increase heat transfer rates. The rate of heat transfer depends on the surface area of the fin. This paper reviews the various geometries of pin fins used to enhance the heat transfer rate and also the outcomes of the research work done in different countries.
