The objective of the present paper is to propose an analytical model for calculating performance parameter of a radiator having rectangular tube with louvered fins. The theoretical effectiveness, heat transfer rate, outlet temperatures of both air and coolant are determined using effectiveness-NTU method. The coolant and air side pressure drop is also calculated. The proposed procedure is validated with experimetal results available in the literature and the GT model. It is found that the maximum deviation in the heat transfer rate calculated from proposed model is 10.97%, the coolant and air outlet temperatures is 2.75% and variation in pressure drop is about 3.29%.
