Analytical heat conduction model of annular composite fins
MetadataShow full item record
A two-dimensional analytical heat conduction model of an annular composite fin has been carried out. The composite fins composed of a porous polyethylene core, a square aluminum insert, and metallic zinc coating layers, was fabricated using wire-arc spraying technology. Analytical solutions of temperature distribution, energy dissipation and fin efficiency through the fins at natural convection condition have been proposed.
