An IC Engine releases heat to the surrounding through the mode of convection, to facilitate this. Fins are provides a means by which heat transfer rate can be improved. Heat transfer rate depends on Fin Geometry, Fin materials and Velocity of automobile vehicle. The main aim of the project is to study the cylinder fin and analyse the thermal performance by varying geometry and material. Models of cylinder with fin have been developed to predict the steady state thermal behavior. The analysis is done using Ansys 19.0 Present used material for internal core is grey cast iron and fin body with aluminum alloy. We are replacing with Grey cast iron, Aluminum alloy and copper alloy separately for entire body. The shape of the fin is rectangular; we have changed the shape with round shaped at the corner of fin. In this research paper, the heat transfer performance is analysed by design and modification of fin geometry. The heat transfer performance of fin without extension and with extension is compared using different materials.
