Abstract The thermal performance of an annular fin of arbitrary profile with periodic base and environment temperatures is considered. The temperature of the fin is taken as the sum of a steady and a steady-periodic components. The governing equation for the steady-periodic component is solved using the complex combination method. The influence of the fin parameter, fin geometry, amplitudes and frequencies of the imposed periodic base and environment temperatures on the fin temperature, rate of… Expand
