The title of this project is "Investigating the Effectiveness of Heat Transfer through Fins Arranging in Various Temperature Difference Situations". The main objective is to find the effectiveness of fin efficiency through different spacing of fin arrangements in any given heat transfer apparatus. The second objective of this research is to compare the performance of two types of fin arrangements which are arrangements of 0.5cm and 1 cm . The next objective that needed to be achieved is to design and fabricate two experiment apparatus models at low cost to test the effectiveness of these fin arrangements. Through this research students can understand the relationship between fin effectiveness and fin efficiency and the equations involved to find both the variables. Other than that the criteria involved in selecting an optimal fin type and design were also discussed in this research. This research will be beneficial for students where concepts of heat transfer, fin efficiency, fin effectiveness, adiabatic fin tip can be applied for practical purposes. Newton's Law of Cooling theory and forced convection theory is discussed in this project. Students will be able to apply their understanding of the theories of fin arrangement through the apparatus prepared by the researchers and the usage of this apparatus will broaden their knowledge in terms of application. The results obtained from experimental research showed that the fin effectiveness was influenced by the gap between fins. This research concluded that increase in surface area will increase fin effectiveness.
