Diffusive heat and mass transfer

Lecture 7:

Heat Transfer in Extended surfaces

(Fins)

NPTEL,IITKharagpur,Prof.SaikatChakraborty,DepartmentofChemicalEngineering

Heat conduction in a cooling Fin

Fins: Heat flow mainly depends on three factors (1) area of the surface (2) temperature

difference and (3) the convective heat transfer coefficient. Rate of heat transfer can be increased

by enhancing any one of these factors. Out of these, the base surface area is limited because of

the design of the object; temperature difference depends on process and having process

limitations. The only choice appears to be the convection heat transfer coefficient and this can

not be increased beyond a certain value. Thus the possible option is to increase the base surface

area by the extended surfaces also known as fins.

Fins are thus used whenever the available surface area is found insufficient to transfer

required quantity of heat with available temperature gradient and heat transfer coefficient. In the

case of fins the direction of heat transfer by convection is perpendicular to the direction of

conduction heat flow.

Some of the examples of the use of extended surfaces are in cylinder heads of air cooled

engines and compressors and on electric motor bodies. In radiators and air conditioners, tubes

with circumferential fins are normally used to increase the heat flow. Electronic chips cannot

function without using fins to dissipate heat generated. Fins with different shapes are in use.

These are (i) Plate fins of constant sectional area (ii) Plate fins of variable sectional area (iii)

Annular of circumferential fins with constant thickness (iv) Annular fins of variable thickness (v)

NPTEL,IITKharagpur,Prof.SaikatChakraborty,DepartmentofChemicalEngineering

Pin fins with constant sectional area and (vi) Pin fins with variable sectional area. Fig.(7.1)

shows fins with different geometrical patterns.

NPTEL,IITKharagpur,Prof.SaikatChakraborty,DepartmentofChemicalEngineering

A simplified model for heat transfer through rectangular fin with constant surface area is shown

in fig. (7.2). The surface of the slab from which heat is to be dissipated to the surrounding fluid,

is extended by a fin on it. Heat is transferred from the surface to the fin from at its base by

conduction. This heat is mainly convected to the surrounding fluid over the fin surface (it may

radiate also). The assumptions made are,

Assumption

1. Temperature (T) varies along the length of the fin (Z-direction) only

2. Negligible heat loss from the edge and from the end

3. Constant thermal conductivity k and heat transfer coefficient h

4. Steady state

5. Heat transfer by radiation is neglected

NPTEL,IITKharagpur,Prof.SaikatChakraborty,DepartmentofChemicalEngineering

1. Differential shell balance

2. Starting from General Conservation equation

The heat flux per unit area over a specified region is given as

The analysis can be done by considering the energy balance for small elemental volume of a

length z as shown in fig. (7.2). For this case the applicable energy equation in terms of

temperature T is

(7.5)

Note: equation (7.5) holds for solids with constant and k

Heat conducted in at Z Heat conducted out at Z+Z

Heat convected over the surface of element= 0

According to assumption (3), i.e. constant k and also considering constant surface area (not

influenced by temperature), hence for the steady state condition, equation (7.5) yields

k 2 T + Q = 0

(7.6)

If we were to solve the 2-D fin problem (in x and z) then Q = 0 and the heat transfer coefficient

would enter through the boundary condition. But, by assuming 1-D transport, the heat loss due to

h will enter as a volumetric sink, as Q , in the energy balance. [Note that Q is a source in

equation (7.5)]. The heat removal rate will then be given by

Q=

(7.12)

In this model the heat convected through tip of the fin is neglected. The error due o this can be

minimized by increasing the length by L equal to B (half the thickness) where 2B is the

thickness of the fin. In case of circular fin L is equal to D/4.
