Fins, Steady State Thermal, Pin-Fin Heat Sinks, Thermal Performance of Fins, Fins using Ansys


This paper gives the research on Steady state thermal analysis of four type of square pin-fin heat sinks using the analysis and simulation software called Ansys. The three-dimensional solid model of the square pin-fin heat sinks were created by using the one of the 3D solid modelling software called "Creo". Among the all thermal materials, Aluminium material was chosen and the steady state thermal project was selected for the heat transfer enhancement of the pin-fin heat sinks. From the various researches, it was found that the heat transfer rate increases with increasing the surface area. In this research it was found that the surface area of the square pin-fin heat sinks which having the projection plate along its length and also having the centre hole has the maximum heat transfer rate.
