The aim of this work is to investigate experimentally the effect of the forced vibrations on the free convection heat transfer coefficient using heated longitudinally finned cylinder made of Aluminium. The effect of the vibration frequency ranged from 2 to16 Hz with various heat fluxes ranged from 500-1500 W/m2. It was found that, the relation between the heat transfer coefficient and amplitude of vibration increased for all inclination angles from (0°-45°), while the increment of inclination angle decreases the values of convection heat transfer coefficient. The results show that the heat transfer coefficient ratio (hv/ho) of longitudinal finned cylinders in (0°) angle was (8%) and (30%) greater than those for the (30°) and (45°) respectively.
