The objective of this paper is to develop and present a correlation equation for the average heat transfer coefficient associated with long horizontally oriented circular fin rods that accounts for the effect of both modes of heat transfer: convection and radiation. Four aluminum circular cross-section test rods with diameters of 3.18, 6.35, 9.53, and 12.7 mm were used to develop such a correlation equation. This correlation will be supplied to the students to be used in the design of a fin
