Enhancement of two-phase thermosyphon heat transfer
Al-Baluski, Khamis Rajab Nasser
Enhancement of the two-phase flow thermosyphon heat transfer was experimentally investigated in terms of geometry, orientation and the cooling plate temperature. The thermosyphon consists of a heated wall and a parallel cooled wall with a gap of a certain width in between. Vapor phase is generated through boiling on the heated wall, and is condensed by the cooled wall. Characteristics regarding the enhanced heat transfer coefficient and critical heat flux are discussed. The results have a potential to be applied in electronic devices, turbines and solar systems.
