    Abstract :

    The Engine cylinder is one of the major automobile components, which is subjected to high temperature variations and thermal stresses. In order to cool the cylinder, fins are provided on the surface of the cylinder to increase the rate of heat transfer. By doing thermal analysis on the engine cylinder fins, it is helpful to know the heat dissipation inside the cylinder. By increasing the surface area the heat dissipation rate increases. So designing such a large complex engine is very difficult.The main aim of the present paper is to analyze the thermal properties by varying geometry, material and thickness of cylinder fins. The 3D models of the geometries are created in CREO software and its thermal properties are analyzed using ANSYS workbench by assuming steady state thermal conditions.Material used for modeling cylinder fin is Aluminium alloy A204 with thermal conductivity of 150 W/mK and Aluminium alloy 7075 with thermal conductivity 130 W/m K and comparing the results and two geometries, rectangular and circular fins are modeled and comparing the results, also changing the thickness of the fin from 0.5 inches to 0.2 inches.
