simulation of heat pipe (evaporation part)
Hi everyone, i am currently doing my undergrad and i get this topic (heat pipe) for my final year project...... Just wanna ask whether cfx or fluent is easier to use to model the boiling part of the working fluid in it. Any suggestion??

for the heating part, do i need to draw a heating medium to contact to the pipe?? or juz put the boundary condition of the heat pipe wall as heat flux in to serve as a heating source??

type of working fluid: water
type of HP material: copper
and there is very thin porous domain in the heat pipe to simplify things....

i'm running out of time, hope anyone in this forum can give some suggestion and guidance.... thanks in advance...
