Abstract

The performance of different enhanced plate fin and circular fin geometries is discussed in detail. The study on enhanced surfaces like herringbone fin, perforated fin, segmented or spine fin and vortex generators for heat transfer enhancement in round tubes is presented. Also, the effect of fin pitch and rows on heat transfer characteristics in tube bundles is reported.
