Theoretical Analysis and Experimental Investigation on Designing Method of Micro-Groove Heat Pipe
In this paper, a kind of one-dimensional steady-state model is used to analyze and simulate the capillary motion of the working material in micro heat pipe. The character of this model is that it includes the influence of the interface friction, and the influence of the friction to the micro heat pipe’s performance is also simulated and analyzed. The maximum heat transport capacity and the optimizing size of the grooves are calculated by this model. Some experiments have been carried out to evaluate the simulation results.
