The Engine is one of the important component in an automobile which is subjected to high temperature and thermal stresses. In order to cool the engine the fins are another component which are used to dissipate the heat from the Engine. Fins are generally used to increase the heat transfer rate from the system to the surroundings. By doing computational flow analysis on the engine cooling fins, it is helpful to know about the heat dissipation rate and the Principle implemented in this project is to increase the heat transfer rate, so in this analysis, the fins are modified by putting different types of notches and are of same material. The knowledge of efficiency and effectiveness of the fins are necessary for proper designing of fins. The main objective of our analysis is to determine the flow of heat at various notches available and the analysis is done by using ANSYS â?“ CFD Fluent software.
