A computational analysis of conjugate mixed convection heat transfer from shrouded vertical nonisothermal heat sink on a horizontal base is performed. The overall Nusselt number and the product of friction factor (f) and Reynolds number (Re) are found to vary significantly with the spacing of heat sink as well as with the clearance between shroud and heat sink. By increasing the fin conductance by 200%, an enhancement of Nusselt number is noted to be around 58%, while the same Nusselt number enhancement is 134% for isothermal fin, within the range of parametric studies. The fRe value for smaller fin spacing shows a maximum with clearances, while the same for higher fin spacing remains the same or increases with clearances. Finally, overall Nusselt number and friction factor are well correlated with the governing parameters of the problem.
