Trapezoidal fins are widely used especially for aircraft applications where the weight of the fin and safety are important factors in the design of the structures. Therefore, the present work focuses on the analysis of heat transfer in a convective-radiative moving porous trapezoidal fin using finite element method. The simulated results reveal that the dimensionless temperature distribution increases as the surface emissivity constant, power index of heat coefficient, Peclet number, porosity and ambient temperature increase. The present results will help in the design of trapezoidal fin operating in a high temperature and temperature-dependent heat transfer coefficient.
