Abstract

The effects of increasing the fin length from 250 to 375 mm on (i) the steady-state rate of heat loss and (ii) the optimal uniform fin separation of vertical rectangular fins protruding from a horizontal or a vertical rectangular base, have been investigated experimentally. A constant base temperature, 40 (±0·3)°C above that of the ambient environment, was used.
