Hi I am doing my academic research/thesis on enhancing and modifying extended fin surface for heat transfer and dissipation. So in my modified design I have given the tip of the fin an airfoil shape in place of flat tip. My conception is for forced convection, whether its a laminar or turbulent air flow the air velocity at the top of the fin would much higher due to the boundary layer separation occurred on the top of the airfoil which would increase the heat transfer and would require less time to dissipate the heat.
Now my question is-
- Is my theoretical conception valid on using airfoil on heat transfer fro fins.
- Should I use conjugate heat transfer analysis for airfoil tip rectangular fins.
- I am actually having some problem in setting up the fin geometry in the Flow region. So it would be very helpful If the simscale support team experts can fix the geometry problem and guide me further.
I have followed this project for my geometry preparation and orientation:
Thanks In Advance
