Investigation of the thermal resistance of miniature heat pipes

Владимир Юрьевич Кравец, Ярослав Васильевич Некрашевич, Анна Петровна Гончарова


The paper presents the results of an experimental study of thermal resistance of miniature heat pipes with metal-fibrous capillary structure. It is shown that the size of thermal resistance is influenced by a considerable quantity of factors, оne of defining factors is a vapour space diameter
