(54)HEAT TRANSFER DEVICES AND METHODS FOR FACILITATING CONVECTIVE HEAT TRANSFER WITH A HEAT SOURCE OR A COLD SOURCE


(57) Heat transfer devices and methods for enclosing a heat source and facilitating convective heat transfer from the heat source. A heat transfer device includes an outer wall having an outer surface exposed to an environment of the heat transfer device and defining an outer shape of the heat transfer device, and an inner wall defining a flow passage through the heat transfer device. The outer wall and the inner wall collectively define an internal volume that is configured to house the heat source. The flow passage comprises an inlet configured to receive a fluid from the environment, and an outlet configured to exhaust the fluid from the flow passage that comprises a core region extending between the inlet and the outlet and configured to deliver the fluid from the inlet to the outlet and allow heat to exchange between the fluid within the core region and the internal volume.
