In this research, the heat transfer performance of fin is analyzed by design of fin with various extensions such as rectangular extension, trapezium extension, triangular extensions and circular segmental extensions. The heat transfer performance of fin with same geometry having various extensions and without extensions is compared. Near about ranging 5% to 13% more heat transfer can be achieved with these various extensions on fin as compare to same geometry of fin without these extensions. Fin with various extensions design with the help of software AutoCAD. Analysis of fin performance done through the software Autodesk® Simulation Multiphysics. In this thermal analysis, temperature variations w.r.t. distance at which heat flow occur through the fin is analyzed. Extensions on the finned surfaces is used to increases the surface area of the fin in contact with the fluid flowing around it. So, as the surface area increase the more fluid contact to increase the rate of heat transfers from the base surface as compare to fin without the extensions provided to it. On comparison, rectangular extensions provide on fin gives the greatest heat transfer than that of other extensions having the same length and width attached to finned surface. The effectiveness of fin with rectangular extensions greater as compare to other extensions on fin.
