Abstract

Predictions of the operating liquid level in the evaporator of a closed two-phase thermosyphon (gravity heat pipe) are given throughout a simplified analysis which takes the influence of the dimension and condensation heat transfer in the condenser of the heat pipe into account. In order to verify the accuracy of our model comparison of the present study with some published results is made by means of computational examples.
