Title

One-Dimensional Fin-Tip Boundary Condition Correction II

Abstract

Exact expressions are presented for the corrective terms for a one-dimensional fin temperature and heat lost when the insulated tip assumption is used for the case where the tip is maintained at a constant temperature. Both straight rectangular and uniformly thick annular fin geometries are discussed. Numerical examples are shown to highlight the considerable error in assuming an insulated tip condition.
