In the study of heat transfer, fins are surfaces that extend from an object to increase the rate of heat transfer to or from the environment by increasing convection. The amount of conduction, convection, or radiation of an object determines the amount of heat it transfers. Increasing the temperature gradient between the object and the environment, increasing the convection heat transfer coefficient, or increasing the surface area of the object increases the heat transfer. Sometimes it is not feasible or economical to change the first two options. Thus, adding a fin to an object, increases the surface area and can sometimes be an economical solution to heat transfer problems. Industrial experience has shown that for same surface area, the fin array can transfer considerably more energy than single fin. Analysis of single fin is well known. However, when fins are placed in an arrangement, the convective patterns become consistent and the resulting heat transfer coefficient has not been predicted. This paper gives a brief review on the thermal behaviour of different fin profiles. And various conclusions made by different authors are discussed. This study will be helpful for those who work in the field of fin.
