This paper presents a numerical investigation of fully developed flow and heat transfer in triangular cross section plate-fin ducts encountered in compact heat exchangers. Heat conduction in the fin and convection in the fluid are analyzed simultaneously as a conjugate problem. Overall and local results are presented for representative values of the duct aspect ratio and a fin conductance parameter.
