Abstract

There is growing demand for highly efficient heat transfer devices having excellent performance, operational stability and low power consumption. Although loop heat pipes satisfy these requirements, conventional loop heat pips have limited application to flat heat sources due to their mostly cylindrical evaporator shape. To overcome this limitation, various types of flat evaporator loop heat pipes have been developed, though their operational reliability is still uncertain. In this work, we focused on the development of a flat bifacial evaporator loop heat pipe, and its operating characteristics at transient and steady states are discussed in detail.
