In this study, various fin geometries are referred for steady-state natural convection heat transfer. The effects of fin spacing, fin length, fin height, % of perforations, shape of perforations etc. are studied. For high powered street LED lights heat sinks with horizontal fin arrays are utilized. Large amount of heat generated in these street LED's must have to be dissipated effectively, so that the life span of the same can be enhanced. For the heat sinks currently utilized in the high powered street LEDís a stagnation zone is formed at the symmetry centre of the fins this causes the problem in air circulation ultimately affects the heat dissipation capacity of the heat sink. Therefore there should be the proper provision for air to be drawn.
