A combined theoretical, experimental and numerical study was conducted to investigate the problem of laminar free convection underneath a hot isothermal and inclined fin array. The influence of inclination on the location where the flow stagnates, and splits, was examined. Heat transfer rates were calculated for different fin array geometries and temperatures. The results show that for small inclination...
