cooling fins

cooling fins

cooling fins
The fins around the cylinder head of a reciprocating engine, which improve the normal cooling action. The fins increase the area of the cylinder and thus provide for greater heat transfer.

With the conventional direct cooling system, heat generated by the semiconductor chip only reaches the cooling fins just under the chip and does not spread because of the thin copper substrate and insulated substrate with high thermal resistance positioned directly below the chip.
DriveGuard tyres are lighter than conventional run-flats and their patented cooling fins help reduce temperature build-up in the carcass after a puncture, allowing drivers to carry on for up to 50 miles at 50mph.

How we use airspeed to manage the engine's heat should be fairly obvious: The faster we fly, the greater is the flow of air into the cowling, past the cylinder cooling fins and through the oil cooler, then overboard, taking those BTUs with it.
