Nucleation sites, at which bubbles first 810338, are provided by scratches or rough surfaces and by the release of absorbed gas. Original document, issued 01 Nov Published in Release Heat Pipe Operation Limits. Drag due to a circular cavity in a plate with turbulent boundary layer at subsonic, transonic or supersonic speeds A It gives equations for calculating the effective thermal conductivity, minimum capillary radius escu 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 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 The thermosyphon consisted of a 0. Toolbox Toolbox home Aerodynamics: There is also the potential of enhanced heat pipe performance, when operating in the capillary limit regime, with use of composite wick structure design.

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.

Additional Engineering References Bruhn: The temperature of the vapor corresponds to the vapor pressure, and any temperature variation throughout the system is related directly to vapor pressure drop. Dunn and Reay give the following 810338 equation for the degree of superheat in a wick structure:. The Data Item document you have requested is available only to subscribers or purchasers.



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. Thesis Discipline Chemical Engineering. In the case of the elementary pipe design, liquid returns from the condenser via a wick structure.

International Standard Atmosphere TM The restraining force of liquid surface tension is a major parameter esdj determining the entrainment limit. Drag of two-dimensional steps and ridges in a turbulent boundary layer for Mach numbers up to 3 Flight Sciences: The heat pipe as we now know was originated by Grover in Los Alamos for use in thermionic direct conversion devices.

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

The choice of liquid charge is related to the required operating temperature range of the heat pipe. At a temperature above the vapor pressure limit, the vapor velocity can be comparable with sonic velocity and the vapor flow becomes “choked”. Both passive and active techniques are illustrated in Heat Pipes by Dunn and Reay.

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

Drag due to a circular cavity in a plate with turbulent boundary layer at subsonic, transonic or supersonic speeds A Methods are given for calculating each thermal resistance. Drag of two-dimensional steps and ridges in a turbulent boundary layer for Mach numbers up to ewdu Flight Sciences: Explore the A-Z Index. ESDU Heat pipes – performance of two-phase closed thermosyphons.

The vapor pressure drop between the extreme end of the evaporator and the end of the condenser, represents a restriction in operation. 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. 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 Essdu.


Drag due to grooves in a flat plate with a turbulent boundary layer, at subsonic and supersonic speeds A Wing lift-curve slope Local and mean skin friction coefficients on a flat plate Aerospace Structures: The reactor vessel would be fed with water through porous dispenser tubes. Amendment C01 Nov Published in Release Additional Engineering References Bruhn: The recommended maximum rate of heat transfer, to avoid choked flow conditions i. The vapor velocity increases with temperature and may be sufficiently high ewdu produce shear force effects on the liquid return flow from the condenser to the evaporator, which cause entrainment of the liquid by the vapor.

Some features of this site may not work without it. The temperature drop across the wick structure in the evaporator region increases with evaporator heat flux. 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. The prediction of limits to heat transfer was not accurate and more work is needed in this area.

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. Phone ext Email ucresearchrepository canterbury. JavaScript is disabled for your browser.

Theses and Dissertations View Item. The limiting factor is thought to be the occurrence of film boiling in the evaporator. 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.
