The performance characteristics of round tubes having plain-plate fins are discussed in this chapter. The concepts of wavy fins, louvred fins, multi louvred fins, fin numbering, etc. are explained in detail. Staggered and in-line arrangement of tube bundles and fin spacing are the other topics covered here. The correlations for configurations are also presented.
