R, Structures of very high thermal conductance, J Appl. The wick is designed to provide a capillary pumping action, as described below. The thermosyphon differs from the heat pipe, in having no wick structure. There is 8138 the potential of enhanced heat pipe performance, when operating in the capillary limit regime, with use of composite wick structure design.

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 The recommended maximum rate of heat transfer, to avoid choked flow conditions i.

Additional Engineering References Bruhn: JavaScript is disabled for your browser. The reactor vessel would be fed with water through porous dispenser tubes. The maximum heat transfer under this condition is given by.

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

The choice of working fluid very much depends on the thermophysical properties of the fluid as well as the mode of operation of the device. 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.

Theses and Dissertations View Item. It was conceived that this reactor design 8138 permit both boiling and superheating in a single pass through the porous element ” fuel rods “.

Methods are given for wsdu each thermal resistance.


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

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. A preliminary esdk into the geothermal application of long heat pipes. Thermophysical properties of heat pipe working fluids: A point is reached when temperature difference exceeds the degree of superheat sustainable in relation to nucleate boiling conditions.

Heat and Mass Transfer16, For laminar flow condition i. The heat pipe is a development of the thermosyphonin which there is no wick structure and liquid is returned to the evaporator by gravity.

Drag of two-dimensional steps and ridges in a turbulent boundary layer for Edsu numbers up to 3 Flight Sciences: 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. The heat pipe as we now know was originated by Grover in Los Alamos for use in thermionic direct conversion devices.

These results compare well with the predicted values found using a calculation procedure presented by Engineering Services Data Unit, Item No. The factor f 3 is a function of the inclination of the heat pipe. Dunn and Reay give the following impirical equation for 8038 degree of superheat in a wick structure:. Both passive and active techniques are illustrated in Heat Pipes by Dunn and Reay.

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. ESDU is one of a group of five on heat pipe performance.

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

The choice of working fluid must be such that the heat pipe is operated at a temperature well beyond the viscous limit, even at start up. At a temperature above the vapor pressure limit, the vapor velocity can be comparable with sonic velocity and the vapor flow becomes “choked”. 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.


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

The Data Item document you have requested is available only to subscribers or purchasers.

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. Explore the A-Z Index. The factor f 1 is a function of a dimensionless parameter K pwhich is defined as. 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.

International Standard Atmosphere TM 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.

Vapor Pressure or Viscous Limit. The limiting factor is thought to be the occurrence of film boiling in the evaporator.

In this project a esdk phase thermosyphon, approximately 8m long, was constructed and tested in order to examine design procedures and to find optimum operating conditions. Degree Name Master of Engineering. Nucleation sites, at which bubbles first form, are provided by scratches or rough surfaces and by the release of absorbed gas.

Two working fluids, water and hexane, were tested and a 60 mesh stainless steel wick was also used in the evaporator.
