The heat transfer can be done more efficiently with various methods. These methods are mostly used to save energy and materials and hence helping to make a financially effective method good enough to keep going long and fill its need. This paper enlists the various sorts of heat transfer enhancement techniques used. In recent times, there has been a considerable amount of research being carried out in the scope of improving the heat transfer. These methods can be broadly classified into three divisions: active, passive, and compound. The practises that require an outer wellspring of force are termed as the active methods, while the ones that don’t need an outer wellspring of force are referred to as the passive methods. The compound methods are the ones that use complex designs which limits their use. The main aim is to deal with the various types of heat transfer techniques and get a desired detailed information about them. The paper goes into the details using ribs in fin and tube heat exchanger to make a more efficient heat transfer. It is observed that for the normal fin and tube heat exchanger the heat enhancement was around 30% which was increased to 34% with the help of eight ribs on each side of fins. There is a slight increase in the heat transfer with an increase in the number of ribs. © 2023, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
