Unformatted text preview: pin fins will provide the best performance. Plot the heat transfer per unit area of base surface for each of these fin shapes as a function of aspect ratio. Note that the performance of these fins can be obtained from the EES functions eta_fin_spine_parabolic_ND , eta_fin_spine_parabolic2_ND , and eta_fin_spine_triangular_ND . Explain the shape of your plot. c.) Assume that part (b) indicated that parabolic convex fins are the best. You have been asked whether it is most useful to spend time working on techniques to improve (increase) the aspect ratio or improve (reduce) the pitch ratio. Answer this question using a contour plot that shows contours of the heat transfer per unit area in the parameter space of AR and PR ....
