The heat transfer rate for flow through tube/pipe can be augmented by one or more from the following: 1) By creating turbulence in the flow. 2) By increasing the friction. 3) By increasing the surface area. The heat transfer area can be increased by providing fins. These fins may be integral or externally attached to the tube. The fins can be made up of various shapes and the material can be of the same or different than base tube material. In the present experimental work, investigation has been carried out for the heat transfer characteristics of a brass alloy base tube with corrugated copper fins. The investigation has been carried for water temperature varying from 400 C to 600C and water velocity1.2 m/sec to 3 m/sec; and air velocity 1.4 m/sec to 14 m/sec. The thermal performance of this tube has been studied and on this basis heat transfer characteristics has been analysed.
