Original document, issued 01 Nov Published in Release The factor f 3 is a function of the inclination of the heat pipe. Some features of this site may not work without it. The Data Item document you have requested is available only to subscribers or purchasers. 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 Dunn and Reay give the following impirical equation for the degree of superheat in a wick structure:.

Drag of two-dimensional steps and ridges in a turbulent boundary layer for Mach numbers up to 3 Flight Sciences: The vapor velocity increases with temperature esu 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 eddu vapor. The use of accurate operating conditions when predicting the thermosyphon performance was found to be essential.


In this project a two phase thermosyphon, approximately 8m long, was constructed and tested in order to examine design procedures and to find optimum operating conditions.


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. The use of a buffer gas to control vapor exdu and hence vapor temperature is seen to be a very effective method of temperature control.

It gives equations for 81083 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.

The prediction of limits to heat transfer was not accurate and more work is edu in this area. Drag due to grooves in a flat plate with a turbulent boundary layer, at subsonic and supersonic speeds A The temperature drop across the wick structure in the evaporator region increases with evaporator heat flux.

The factor f 1 is a function of a dimensionless parameter K pwhich is defined as. In the case of the elementary pipe design, liquid returns from the condenser via a wick structure. Send Feedback Contact Us.

For laminar flow condition i. The choice of working fluid must be such that the heat pipe eddu operated at a temperature well beyond the viscous limit, even at start up. Theses 881038 Dissertations View Item. Degree Grantor University of Canterbury. 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.


Equations relating to the various limits of performance of a two-phase closed thermosyphon are given in ESDU data sheet It is thought that a two phase thermosyphon may be used to remove geothermal energy from a geothermal aquifer to supply energy at a rate of the order of 10 kW to a small scale user, such as a domestic dwelling. It is seen that stable boiling can only be achieved in a porous media if a uniform flow regime is established.

The choice of liquid charge is related to the required operating temperature range of the heat pipe. Vapor Pressure or Viscous Limit. 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.

The liquid metals, having much higher surface tension give much higher degrees of superheat e.

A preliminary investigation into the geothermal application of long heat pipes

The temperature of the vapor corresponds to the vapor pressure, and any temperature variation throughout the system is related directly to vapor pressure drop.

Nucleation sites, at which bubbles first form, are provided by scratches or rough surfaces 8103 by the release of absorbed gas. Drag of two-dimensional steps and ridges in a turbulent boundary layer for Mach numbers up to 3 Flight Sciences:
