Abstract—Over the past couple of years the use of concavities or dimples to enhance the heat transfer
has been reported by several researchers. This work deals with experimental investigation of
the forced convection heat transfer over circular dimpled surfaces. The various heat transfer
parameters considered for study are Nusselt number, heat transfer coefficient, heat transferrate
andReynolds Number. From the obtained results, novel conclusion for thedesign of compactheat
exchangercan be drawn (Katkhaw, 2014).
