Abstract
Similar to the Saint-Venant principle in mechanics it is know that a ‘sufficient amount’ of fluid domain needs to be added to each side of the heat sink in order to obtain representative values to compare different fin shapes. In this paper there will be studied what can be defined as a sufficient amount of fluid domain. For this different fin shapes will be studied and both the influence of side and top location of the fluid domain will be investigated. This work will also indicate the mistakes that are often made in open literature while simulating fins in natural convection in CFD.
