Average heat-transfer coefficients are presented for fin arrays positioned with the base oriented horizontally. The flow field associated with the natural convection from the fin arrays was investigated and used as a model to find parameters to generalize the data. The proposed correlation overcomes the inadequacy of parameters available previously for horizontal rectangular fins.
