Abstract

An approach to the computation of the efficiency of a system with heat pipes is discussed. Conditions are analyzed for the axial transport of heat along the wall and framework of a heat pipe. A scheme to compute the thermal resistance of a heat pipe is recommended. Efficiency criteria are formulated.
