LONGITUDINAL FIN OF TRIANGULAR PROFILE

The differential equation for temperature excess :

Define Temperature excess:

is:

The differential equation for temperature excess is a form

of Bessel’s equation of 0th order:

The fin heat dissipation is:

The fin efficiency is:

Iterative solving yields bT=2.6188 and

Rectangular Profile:

Triangular Profile:

For the same material, surrounding conditions and

which is basically the user’s design requirement.

Triangular profile requires only about 68.8% as much metal as rectangular profile.

Comparison of Longitudinal Fin (cont.)

Fin mass is proportional to Ap & r.

Apis inversely proportional to thermal conductivity.

Optimum Shape of Parabolic Profile

Solution of Euler equation:

The temperature excess is linear if p=1.

For p=1:

And the efficiency will be:

Size of A FinVs Number of Fins

In both (strip and triangular) fins, profile area varies as :

To double the heat flow make one fin eight times as large

or you use two fins !!!

In pin fin, profile volume varies as

To double the heat flow, make one fin 3.17 times as large or use two fins.

More number of small fins are better than …...
