Abstract: A method for optimizing design configuration of an offset strip fin heat sink is proposed with a comparative study of the results. Optimization was conducted through common entropy generation rate minimization using the newly developed Harmony Search. For comparison and proof of viability of the proposed method, results of both Harmony Search and Genetic Algorithm are given. These results demonstrate the merit of Harmony Search optimization in such complex engineering problems.
