Amplification of the Thermocapillary Convection during Evapo-Condensation Cycle in Heat Pipes

Article Preview

The control of a process dealing with heat pipe exploitation needs the thermal analysis of the evaporation-condensation cycle and noticeably the imposed external conditions (in instance modeling the heating). In this work a numerical model has been developed to describe the local coupling near the liquid/vapour interface. Simulations exhibits and quantify the response of the capillary motion to the thermal conditions.
