Abstract

Heat transfer characteristics for a laminar forced convection fully developed flow in an internally finned circular tube with axially uniform heat flux with peripherally uniform temperature are obtained using a finite element method. For a given fin geometry, the Nusselt number base inside tube diameter was higher than that for a smooth tube. Also, it was found that for maximum heat transfer there exists an optimum fin number for a given fin configuration. The internal fins are on triangular shape.
