Experimental data has been obtained that predicts the effect of roll angle upon the natural convection heat transfer from an array of cylindrical spines or pin fins. A correlation is presented that permits evaluation of the Nusselt Modulus as a function of the Rayleigh Modulus and the roll angle and it shows that maximum heat transfer is obtained at roll angles between 20 and 30 degrees.
