For simultaneous investigation of heat transfer and hydraulic parameters of finned circular tube is proposed to connect PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry) method and thermal imaging with gradient heat flux measurement. In the first series of experiments, the hollow fin was investigated. The hollow fin was heated with saturated water steam and its isothermal surface simulated the ideal (isothermal) fin. The solid fin made of titanium alloy was investigated in similar regimes for comparison. In the second series, the influence of distance between fins on the heat transfer coefficients (HTC) at the circular fin, mounted on a circular cylinder was studied. The unique Gradient Heat Flux Sensors (GHFSs) were installed at different places of the fin surface. Comprehensive method including heat flux measurement, PIV and thermal imaging allows to study flow and heat transfer at the surface of the fin in real time. Possibility of complex study of flow and heat transfer for non-isothermal fins is shown.
