The thermal performance of an automotive radiator plays an important role in the performance of an automobile’s cooling system and all other associated systems. In recent decades, the metal composite (Aluminium, Silicon and Mangnesium) radiators are being replaced by Aluminium radiators for its lower cost and lesser weight despite significant drop in performance. It has been scientifically proved that copper radiators are better than aluminium.
The Composite (Aluminium, Silicon and Mangnesium) radiator can be made more effective by modifying the geometry suitably. In this study, an attempt has been made to study the performance of a model composite plate Heat Transfer performance using PIN-FIN Apparatus.
