Abstract

This paper analytically investigates the thermal performance of convective-radiative T-shape fin with simultaneous variation of thermal conductivity, heat transfer coefficient and surface emissivity with temperature. Unlike some other fin studies, the sink temperatures for convection and radiation are assumed to be non-zero. This model is a more realistic representation of fins in actual engineering practice. The collection of graphs provided should facilitate design and performance evaluation of T-shaped fins. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
