This work treats the problem of heat transfer for perforated fins under natural convection. The temperature distribution is examined for an array of rectangular fins (15 fins) with uniform cross-sectional area (100×270 mm) embedded with various vertical body perforations that extend through the fin thickness. The patterns of perforations include 18 circular perforations (holes). Experiments were carried out in an experimental facility that was specifically design and constructed for this purpose. The heat transfer rate and the coefficient of heat transfer increases with perforation diameter increased.
