Title: Fundamental study of evaporation model in micron pore
Author: Oinuma, Ryoji
Abstract: As the demand for high performance small electronic devices has increased , heat removal from these devices for space use is approaching critical limits . A heat pipe is a promising device to enhance the heat removal performance due to the phase change phenomena for space thermal management system . Even though a heat pipe has a big potential to remove the thermal energy from a high heat flux source , the heat removal performance of heat pipes cannot be predicted well since the first principle of evaporation has not been established . The purpose of this study is to establish a method to apply the evaporation model based on the statistical rate theory for engineering application including vapor -liquid -structure intermolecular effect . The evaporation model is applied to the heat pipe performance analysis through a pressure balance and an energy balance in the loop heat pipe .
