The heat pipe has four major operating regimes, each of which sets a limit of performance in either heat transfer rate axial or radial or temperature drop. Two working fluids, water and hexane, were tested and a 60 mesh stainless steel wick was also used in the evaporator.

The thermosyphon differs from the heat pipe, in having no wick structure. The Data Item document you have requested is available only to subscribers or purchasers.

The short residence time for liquid heating and evaporation was exploited in further work associated with pyrolytic chemical reactions. It is seen that stable boiling can only be achieved in a porous media if a uniform flow regime is established. This eventually leads to ” dry out “, which in the case of constant heat flux heating can cause ” Burn Out ” of the evaporator containment.

The device can therefore only operate with the condenser above the evaporator with gravity-assist liquid flow return.

The prediction of limits to heat transfer was not accurate and more work is needed in this area. This condition relates to entrainment or flooding. In selecting the working fluid for a heat pipe or thermosyphon it is necessary to ensure that the device operates within the above defined limits. ESDU is one of a group of five on heat pipe performance.


IHS ESDU Heat pipes – properties of common small-pore wicks.

The maximum heat flux as given in ESDU The edu pipe as we now know was originated by Grover in Los Alamos for use in thermionic direct conversion devices. The vapor velocity increases with temperature and may be sufficiently high to produce shear force effects on the liquid return flow from the condenser to the evaporator, which cause entrainment of the liquid by the vapor. Nucleation sites, at which bubbles first form, are provided by scratches or rough surfaces and by the release of absorbed gas.

Drag of two-dimensional esddu and ridges in a turbulent boundary layer for Mach numbers up to 3 Flight Sciences: Additional Engineering References Bruhn: The choice of liquid charge is related to the required operating temperature range of the heat pipe. The use of accurate operating conditions when predicting the thermosyphon performance was found to esdh essential.

Advice and expressions are also given for the limits of vapour pressure, sonic velocity in the vapour, dry-out, boiling limit, and the counter-current flow limit. ESDU deals with performance prediction of capillary-driven heat pipes, ESDU deals with performance prediction of two-phase closed thermosyphons, ESDU introduces the use of heat pipes and includes practical design experience, and ESDU gives properties of fluids relevant to heat pipe operation at temperatures of to K.


Using this characteristic dimension they have produced a table showing the degree of superheat for a range of candidate heat pipe working fluids, including ammonia, water and liquid metals for high temperature operation. Search the UC Research Repository.

Thesis Discipline Chemical Engineering. Degree Grantor University of Canterbury. In the case of freon, evaporation and superheat was achieved uniformly with a porous element in excess of l m long. Original document, issued 01 Nov Published in Release The wick is designed to provide a capillary pumping action, as described below.

Some features of this site may not work without it. Dunn and Reay give the following impirical equation for the degree of superheat in a wick structure:. Degree Name Master of Engineering.

The heat pipe is a sealed system containing a liquid, which when vaporized transfers heat under isothermal conditions. International Standard Atmosphere TM Theses and Dissertations View Item.

The factor f 3 is esddu function of the inclination of the heat pipe. Drag due to grooves in a flat plate with a turbulent boundary layer, at subsonic and supersonic speeds A Heat and Mass Transfer16, The physical processes involved in a thermosyphon, whereby high rates of heat transfer can be obtained between surfaces that have only a small temperature difference between them, are described.
