Abstract

The primary object of this study is to gain a better understanding of the heat transfer mechanism in the evaporator of a heat pipe. To evaluate the effects of working pressure, working fluid, pipe inclination and noncondensable gas on the heat transfer mechanism, sintered powders were used as the wick, and pure water and R113 as the working fluid. Experimental results for the heat transfer coefficient are compared with predicted values based on the mechanism proposed by authors. The results indicate the mechanism to be substantially correct.
