An Experimental Investigation on Micro Heat Pipe with a Trapezium-Grooved Wick Structure
Through combination of experimental investigation with theoretical optimum design, this paper determined the crucial factors in affecting the heat transfer capacity in micro heat pipes with a trapezium-grooved wick structure are capillary limit and entrainment limit, and verified the validity of the heat transfer models thus built.
