Heat Pipe Calculation
 
I built a one loop heat pipe with some water in it.
The calculation is terminated with the error "excessive pressure iteration failures -- calculation terminated"
It seems that the domain meshing(3D) and the surface contact angel influence the calculation.
Just frustrated after a lot of trials- all failed:(
Is there anyone who do the simulation of 2-phase flow with heat transfer and phase change?
