TH-3127 Extended Surface Heat Exchanger

The extended surface is most often utilized in the removal of heat from a body.

In this unit you will study and perform calculations for extended surface heat transfer. As part of the experiment you will be using automated data collection instruments and thermocouples. We will be interested in the performance of an aluminum pin fin available in our laboratory. You should determine the temperature distribution for both free and forced convection flows and compare the experimental measurements with the predicted values.
