The one-dimensional steady-state solution for radiation from one side of an annular fin has been computed for values of the two design parameters Display Formula0ϵσθi3Kro-ri2.0 and Display Formula1.001ρ=rori15.0. The solution supplies design information needed for satellite thermal-power dissipating surfaces.
