To study thermal analysis of extended surfaces or projections of materials on the system called fins. The fins are used to increase the heat transfer rate from the system to the surrounding by increasing the heat transfer area. The heat transfer effect may be varied by changing material of different thermal conductivities, improvising system geometry, increasing cross section area of fins, using perforations on fin and on CFD analysis of fins. Hence the aim of this paper is to study from different literature surveys that how heat transfer through extended surfaces and the heat transfer coefficient affected by changing cross-section this study is useful to know the better geometry and material for the fins for better system cooling. The main objective of the present paper is computational analysis of heat transfer through fins in exponential profile with growing type and decaying type to quantify and compare it in same boundary conditions after that apply the different types of notches in exponential profile. Objective of this analysis to determine the flow of heat at various notches available and compare the heat flux in different types of cases. The analysis is done by using ANSYS-CFD Fluent.
