This technical paper addresses an elementary analytic procedure for the approximate solution of the quasi-one-dimensional heat conduction equation (a generalized Bessel equation) that governs the temperature variation in annular fins of hyperbolic profile. This fin shape is of remarkable importance because its heat transfer performance is close to that of the annular fin of convex parabolic profile, the so-called optimal annular fin that is capable of delivering maximum heat transfer for a… CONTINUE READING
