Heat sinks (HSs) are designed for the mechanical, electrical and electronic components that generate heat in considerable amount. For this purpose, an aluminum conical pin fin heat sink is designed. Aluminum conical pin-fins geometry has been experimentally investigated for the blowing direction (pushing or pulling) which is the energy efficient option for the heat sink. The heat sink was tested at the same fan power for pushing and pulling conditions for 25, 50, 75 and 100 W resistance heater power. Designed aluminum conical pin fin heat sink can be easily used in heat sweeping processes. It has found that pushing configuration of the fan is more efficient for this design. © 2018 Yildiz Technical University.
