Experimental measurements and numerical analysis have been carried out in order to investigate performances of air-side heat transfer and pressure drop for six types of heat exhcangers with various fin shapes. An air-enthalpy calorimeter is used in this work. Numerical analysis shows a good agreement with experimental measurements. Measurements for six types of heat exchangers at various air-velocity are compared with each other. Heat transfer per unit area appears to be nearly the same in the range of 0.7~0.9 m/s while it varies within 3% at 1.5 m/s. The numerical results show that most of heat transfer takes place through fins for all types and majority of heat transfer happens from the 1st row.
