Finite Element Thermal Analysis on Heat Transfer Performance of Rectangular Micro – Groove Flat Heat Pipe
Having fully considered the influence of gas-liquid interfacial friction on the heat transfer characteristics of heat pipe within the channel, the mathematical model of the flow and heat transfer process in the Rectangular Micro-groove flat heat pipe is established. The simulation is performed by using thermal analysis software ANSYS. The iterative computation values of the center point temperature of the heat pipe surface being compared with the simulation results, the error is only 5.27% and the two are basically the same values, which shows that the mathematical model has a guiding significance on the analysis of heat pipe theory.
