The present work is concerned with the heat transfer enhancement and efficiency in the moving longitudinal fins having trapezoidal cross sections. Finding analytical solutions is targeted so that efficiency of trapezoidal fins over the known fin sections can be comparatively searched. It is shown that certain type of trapezoidal fins may have advantageous fin design features. The formulas given in this paper may also be used as benchmark analysis.
