Abstract: The following paper examines the heat transfer performance of fins with several projections along the length of fins. The projections are cylindrical in shape with same dimensions. The heat transfer performance without projection and with projection is compared. There is about 2% increment in the heat transfer rate when the length of the projection is increased to 1mm. The modelling and simulation software Solidworks is used for analysis. The material used for fin is 1060 Aluminum Alloy having conductive heat transfer coefficient of 200 W/mK. Different parameter values of alloy 1060 are used during solid works simulation.
