Özet

In this study, a methodology for the computation of maximum heat transport capability of grooved heat pipes is presented. The methodology takes into account extrusion limitations together with the vapor, liquid pressure losses along the heat pipe, the temperature drop between evaporator and condenser. The implementation of the methodology to an algorithm and its predictive performance was demonstrated on rectangular, trapezoidal, triangular and re-entrant grooved heat pipes for a specific allowable space and working temperature. It was seen that the heat pipe with re-entrant groove is superior to other geometries in terms of heat transport capacity.
