Fin Efficiency Equation

The efficiency of a fin, which should not be confused with the fin effectiveness, is defined and can be graphed as:

 , where:

 = Fin Efficiency (%)

hf = Convection Coefficient of Fin (W/(m2*K))

k = Thermal Conductivity of Fin (W/(m*K))

tf = Thickness of Fin (m)

Lf = Height of Fin (m)
