Heat dissipation is a major aspect in many applications involving thermal energy. Thermal performance can be enhanced considerably using fins. In this paper perforated fins with varying contact ratio with base plate are analyzed for the augmentation of heat transfer from the base plate. Comparison of Nusselt number with Reynold number has been done for various configurations of fins in this study.
