Natural Convection heat transfer from horizontal rectangular fin array with various knurling patterns is studied experimentally to find the effect of varying surface roughness on the heat transfer rate. The experimental parametric study is performed to investigate the effect of knurl produced surface roughness of fin on heat transfer rate. The parameters like knurling height from base, knurling depth and fin spacing might affect the flow characteristics and hence it is investigated to find the effect on heat transfer coefficient. The knurling is usually accomplished using one or more very hard rollers that contain the reverse of the pattern to be imposed. The result of this study shows that there are some important geometric factors related to knurling affecting the design of fin arrays and also heat transfer augmentation of natural convection heat transfer is observed.
