Extended surfaces or fins are used to enhance the heat transfer rate between a solid and adjoining fluid. An experimental investigation is carried out in the present work to establish the heat transfer characteristic for fins made of varying material and varying cross section. Three different fin sections, circular, square and triangular are considered for the study. Aluminum, brass and copper fins with varying cross section along the length are tested under steady state. Experimental set up consists of a constant temperature bath to maintain desired thermal boundary condition at one end of the fin. Copper constantan thermocouples are used to measure the temperature at different sections of the fin. The experimental results of temperature distribution of the fins are compared with the analytical and numerical results. The effectiveness of fins along the length for all section and materials is also compared.
