Abstract
A geometrically asymmetric trapezoidal fin is analyzed using the one-dimensional analytic method. Heat loss and thermal resistance are represented as a function of the fin base thickness, base height, fm shape factor, inside fluid convection characteristic number, convection characteristic numbers ratio, fm length and ambient convection characteristic number. The relationship between the fin base height and the shape factor for equal amounts of heat loss is presented. One of the results shows that the variations of the fm base thickness and the inside fluid convection characteristic number give no effect on the thermal resistance.
