A model of capillary flow heat transfer is used to analyze the data obtained in Part I. The results indicate that fluid flow resulting from a change in the meniscus profile replenishes the liquid evaporated in a stationary evaporating meniscus. Local evaporative heat fluxes can be very high near the interline region of a finite contact angle meniscus. Therefore, a small stationary evaporating meniscus can be used as a very effective local heat sink.
