Abstract

Louver fins are widely used in heat exchanger for automotive applications such as radiator, intercooler, condenser, heater core etc. This study presents numerical analysis of effect of variation of louver pitch on heat transfer rate of louver fins. The three dimensional governing equations for fluid flow and heat transfer are solved using ANSYS Fluent 14.5 for air flow of 4 m/s to 9 m/s. The variations of temperature, pressure and heat transfer rate are studied using computational model. The enhancement of heat rate is observed as louver pitch is reduced.
