Default Heat Pipe-Urgent
Posts: n/a
Dear Fluent Users'

Has anyone tried modelling a heatpipe system in Fluent?

Do you know how I can represent the 2 phase heat pipe system where there is evaporation at one end of the heat pipe and condensation at the other end. The heat pipe transfers heat in this manner. The heat pipe also works on the concept of capillary action. Is this possible to simulate in FLUENT?

or (another way)

If I want to represent the heat-pipe as highly thermal conductive material without modelling the details(vapor etc). How do wI represent the conductivity of the heat-pipe?

Really appreciate anyone who can help me out!!! Thank you so much in advance...

Yours TSL
