An engine cylinder is one of the major automobile components . Which is subjected to high temperature variations and thermal stresses. We know that by increasing surface area, we can increase heat dissipation rate. The main aim of our project is to analyse the thermal properties , by varying geometry fin material and also the thickness of fins. In order to improve the efficiency and sustainability of the engine, heat dissipation has to be carried out quickly and in a very efficient way. Here analysis of the heat transfer characteristics of engine fins is done by using these following materials namely Aluminium 6061, Aluminium 356 and Aluminium 204.Modelling is done in SOLIDWORKS software,meshing is done in ANSYS workbench
