Experimental studies are made on the convective heat transfer of three types of thin porous bodies. heat transfer performances. Flow patterns and temperature profiles near the porous bodies are compared with each other. the heat transfer performance of porous bodies with the largest pore diameter is large. it became clear that the high heat transfer performance depends on an excellent heat transportation ability inside the pore and near the surface of the porous bodies.
