Engine performance depends on various parameters such as types of material use for making engine, numbers of fins used, thickness of fins, and fins Shape which escort thermal effect on it. In this project our main aim is to analyse the thermal properties by using different types of materials for the fins with variable sizes slots to improve its performance and reduce its cost. The 3D modelling of engine with different slot sizes keeping fin size and number of fin same designed on Solidworks and the analysis on the ANSYS steady state. Presently Material used for manufacturing cylinder fin body is Aluminium Alloy A204 and we are comparing its performance using different material such as Aluminium alloy 6061, Aluminium alloy C443 and Aluminium alloy 2014 which having higher thermal conductivities. The result shows that 75 mm slotted fins of Aluminium alloy 2014 having maximum heat transfer rate and also observed that as the slots size increase above 75 mm there will decrease in heat transfer rate.
