Radiating extended surfaces are widely used to enhance heat transfer between primary surface and the environment. The performance of such a surface is significantly affected by variable thermal conductivity, particularly in the case of large temperature differences. In this study, we used the homotopy perturbation method (HPM) to determine the optimum dimensions of radiating rectangular fins with temperature-dependent thermal conductivity for a fixed fin volume. In this method, the solution does calculated in the form of a convergent series along with an easily computable component. This approach does not need linearization, weak nonlinearity assumptions or perturbation theory.
