Abstract

Heat sinks with fins are generally used to enhance the heat transfer rate in many industrial applications such as cooling of electronic, power electronic, telecommunication and automotive components. In many situations where heat transfer is by natural convection fins offer economical and trouble free solutions. The weight and volume of the equipment are the most important parameters of design. Now days the general trend is to use compact systems especially in electronic field which leads to higher packing density of systems causing higher heat generation. It affects the performance of system and may cause the system failure. The most preferred method for cooling electronic and telecommunications devices is passive cooling since it is cost effective and reliable solution. It doesn’t require costly enhancing devices. This features leads to focus on development of efficient fin heat sink. The important element that defines the geometry of the heat sink is its fins. The fins generally used in industry are straight, circular and pin shaped. The objective of this work is review on the heat transfer rate by different shaped fins in different systems. The proper selection of the interruption length increases the heat transfer rate and in addition providing fin interruptions results in considerable weight reduction that can lead to lower manufacturing cost.
