Heat flow can be increased by using internal finned pipe and tape inserts. This article presents a numerical simulation analysis of constant heat flux and forced convection heat transfer under laminar condition with Fe3O4-water nanofluid. For a constant heat flux of 900 Wm2 and modified T-shaped, longitudinal, and tapered internal fins, the convective heat transfer coefficient, nusselt number, and friction factor between pipe wall and working fluid are evaluated using numerical simulations. All the fins have constant height and constant cross-sectional area. Results indicate that T shaped fin provides higher heat transfer coefficient associated with convection when compared to other geometries, thats around 33% higher than plain tube. But this comes at a cost of increased friction factor. The highest friction factor noted for T shaped fin was 103.68% higher than the plain tube
