Heat Pipes – Performance of Two-phase Closed Thermosyphons. 81038

Toolbox Toolbox home Aerodynamics: The thermosyphon consisted of a 0. Theses and Dissertations View Item. Search the UC Research Repository. The factor f 1 is a function of a dimensionless parameter K pwhich is defined as. The heat pipe is a sealed system containing a liquid, which when vaporized transfers heat under isothermal conditions. The temperature of the vapor corresponds to the vapor pressure, and any temperature variation throughout the system is related directly to vapor pressure drop.

For laminar flow condition i.

ESDU relates to thermosyphons having i circular tubes of uniform cross section, ii a single component working fluid and no non-condensable gas, iii either no wick or a simple wick or insert in the evaporator wall and iv angles of inclination to the horizontal of 5 degrees to 90 degrees. Amendment C01 Nov Published in Release ESDU is one of a group of five on heat pipe performance.

IHS ESDU Heat pipes – performance of two-phase closed thermosyphons.

Drag of two-dimensional steps and ridges in a turbulent boundary layer for Mach numbers up to 3 Flight Sciences: Theses and Dissertations []. Equations relating to the various limits of performance of a two-phase closed thermosyphon are given in ESDU data sheet Thesis Discipline Chemical Engineering.


ESDU Heat pipes – properties of common small-pore wicks. Heat Pipe Operation Limits. Entrainment will cause a starvation of fluid flow from the condenser and eventual ” dry out ” of the evaporator.

In the case of the elementary pipe design, ewdu returns from the condenser via a wick structure. Wing lift-curve slope Local and mean skin friction coefficients on a flat plate Aerospace Structures: It is further possible to control the temperature of operation of the pipe by introducing a controlled pressure of inert gas, such as helium or argon.

Degree Name Master of Engineering. At low temperature range of operation of the working fluid, especially at start-up of the heat pipe, the minimum pressure at the condenser end of the pipe can be very small.

Drag due to grooves in a flat plate with a turbulent boundary layer, at subsonic and supersonic speeds A The maximum rate of heat transfer under this restricted vapor pressure drop limit is given by:. The maximum overall rate of heat transfer depends on the overall temperature difference and the sum of the thermal resistances of the various solid, liquid and vaporous media and interfaces involved. This condition relates to entrainment or flooding.

The use of a buffer gas to control vapor pressure and hence vapor temperature is seen to be a very effective method of temperature control. Vapor Pressure or Viscous 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.

International Standard Atmosphere TM The concept of vaporization of a fluid in a heated porous element was developed firstly at Harwell by Dunn and Rice in the late ‘s for establishing a nuclear reactor design using this principle, and secondly at the University of Reading, leading to the successful submission of a PhD thesis by Rice 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.


This pipe is referred to by Dunn and Reay as “gas-buffered” or “variable conductance” design. It gives equations for calculating the effective thermal conductivity, minimum capillary radius and permeability of a wide range of wicks for use in capillary-driven heat pipes including single-layer and multiple-layer wire mesh, unconsolidated packed particles and sintered felted metal fibres.

Work at Reading lead to the use of the porous element heater for such applications as a fast response vapor diffusion vacuum pump, jointly developed with AERE Harwell and Edwards High Vacuum Ltd. Drag of two-dimensional steps and ridges in a turbulent boundary layer for Mach numbers up to 3 Flight Sciences: The Data Item document you have requested is available only to subscribers or purchasers.

ESDU Heat pipes – performance of two-phase closed thermosyphons. Heat is transferred by means of evaporation and condensation, and gravity is used to return the liquid film to the evaporator as compared with capillary-driven designs which use a wick as described in ESDU
