These results compare well with the predicted values found using a calculation procedure presented by Engineering Services Data Unit, Item No.

Toolbox Toolbox home Aerodynamics: These limits were catogorized by Busse and are as follows. 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.

Drag due to grooves in a flat plate with a turbulent boundary layer, at subsonic and supersonic speeds A Nucleation sites, at which bubbles first form, are provided by scratches or rough surfaces and by the release of absorbed gas. 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.

Vapor Pressure or Viscous Limit. A preliminary investigation into the geothermal application of long heat pipes. Additional Engineering References Bruhn: ESDU Heat pipes – properties of common small-pore wicks.

Heat Pipe Operation Limits. The reactor vessel would be fed with water through porous dispenser tubes. Amendment C01 Nov Published in Release The use of accurate operating conditions when predicting the thermosyphon performance was found to be essential. The heat pipe is a sealed system containing a liquid, which when vaporized transfers heat under isothermal conditions. Drag due to grooves in a flat plate with a turbulent boundary layer, at subsonic and supersonic speeds A The choice of liquid charge is related to the required operating temperature range of the heat pipe.

Original document, issued 01 Nov Published in Release R, Structures of very high thermal conductance, J Appl. The device can therefore only operate with the condenser above the evaporator with gravity-assist liquid flow return.

Drag of two-dimensional steps and ridges in a turbulent boundary layer for Mach numbers up to 3 Flight Sciences: Some features of this site may not work without it.

Heat and Mass Transfer16, The driving pressure for liquid circulation within the heat pipe is given by fsdu capillary force established within the wick structure, namely:. 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.

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 ESDU deals with performance prediction of capillary-driven heat pipes, Esxu deals with performance prediction of two-phase closed thermosyphons, ESDU introduces the use of heat pipes and eseu practical design experience, and ESDU gives properties of fluids relevant to heat pipe operation at temperatures of to K.

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. Wing lift-curve slope Local and mean skin friction coefficients on a flat plate Aerospace Structures: The temperature drop across the wick structure in the evaporator region increases with evaporator heat flux. One of its main features, namely isothermalization, is of major significance in this application.

In esu the working fluid for a heat pipe or thermosyphon it is necessary to ensure that the device operates within the above defined limits. ESDU is one of a group of five on heat pipe performance. Two working fluids, water and hexane, were tested and a 60 mesh stainless steel wick was also used in the evaporator. This pipe is referred to by Dunn and Reay as “gas-buffered” or “variable conductance” design. 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.


The limiting factor is thought to be the occurrence of film boiling in the evaporator. The Data Item document you have requested is available only to subscribers or purchasers. The esru pipe is a development of the thermosyphonin which there is no wick structure and liquid is returned to the evaporator by gravity. It is further possible to control the temperature of operation of the pipe by introducing eseu controlled pressure of inert gas, such as helium or argon.

Entrainment 8103 cause a starvation of fluid flow from the condenser and eventual ” dry out ” of the evaporator. The use of a simple wick in the evaporator was found to hinder heat transfer. Degree Grantor University of Canterbury. 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 esfu University of Reading, leading to the successful submission esdj a PhD thesis by Rice 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.

International Standard Atmosphere TM The viscous and sonic limits are the same as for wicked heat pipes and the equation for the boiling limit and countercurrent flow limits are summarized below. The vapor pressure drop between the extreme end of the evaporator and the end of the condenser, represents a restriction in operation.

At a temperature above the vapor pressure limit, the 81308 velocity can be comparable with sonic velocity and the vapor flow becomes “choked”. Phone ext Email ucresearchrepository canterbury. Theses and Dissertations []. International Standard Atmosphere TM It was conceived that this reactor design would permit both boiling and superheating in a single pass through the porous element ” fuel rods “.

The thermosyphon consisted of a 0.
