Abstract: The present paper gives the experimental analysis of on heat transfer enhancement and the corresponding pressure drop over a flat surface equipped with cylindrical cross-sectional perforated pin fins in a rectangular channel. The channel had a cross-sectional area of 250-100 mm2. The experiments covered the following range: Reynolds number 13,500–42,000, the clearance ratio (C/H) 0, 0.33 and 1, the inter-fin spacing ratio (Sy/D) 1.208, 1.524, 1.944 and 3.417. Nusselt number and Reynolds number were considered as performance parameters. Correlation equations were developed for the heat transfer, friction factor and enhancement efficiency. The experimental implementation shows that the use of the cylindrical perforated pin fins leads to heat transfer enhancement than the solid cylindrical fins. Enhancement efficiencies vary depending on the clearance ratio and inter-fin spacing ratio. Both lower clearance ratio and lower inter-fin spacing ratio and comparatively lower Reynolds numbers are suggested for higher thermal performance.
