Abstract: The Engine chamber is one of the essential engine components, that is subjected to over the top temperature differences and thermal stresses. Fins are set on the surface of the cylinder to improve the quantity of heat exchange by convection. When fuel is burned in an engine, heat is produced. Additional heat is also generated by friction between the moving parts. In air-cooled I.C engine, extended surfaces called fins are provided at the periphery of engine cylinder to increase heat transfer rate. That is why the analysis of fin is important to increase the heat transfer rate. The main of aim of this work is to study various researches done in past to improve heat transfer rate of cooling fins by changing cylinder fin geometry and material. In the present work, Experiments have been performed to discover the temperature variations inside the fins made in four kind geometries (plate Fins, Circular Pin fins, plate fins with holes, and draft Pin fins) and consistent state heat exchange examination has been studied utilizing a finite element software ANSYS to test and approve results. The temperature variations at various areas of fins models are evaluated by FEM and compared models of fins performance by heat flux and temperature variations obtained by experimentally in Analysis. The principle implemented in this project is to expand the heat dissipation rate by utilizing the wind flow. The main aim of the study is to enhance the thermal properties by shifting geometry, material, and design of fins.
