Experimental Study on the Heat Transfer Performance of Rectangular Plate-type Heatpipe


Heat pipes are nowadays being used for cooling purposes in various fields, including electronic circuit boards and automobile parts that cause large amounts of heat. Nano particles are added to the working fluid, which is a heat transfer medium. In this study, the model of the product does not take on the traditional circular pipe shape, but takes on an integral structure with multiple rectangular channels which have fine grooves on their inner surface. This increases the surface area allowing the working fluid to contact a wider area, thereby improving the heat transfer performance. An empirical study will be performed on the heat transfer effect of this product, examining the temperature change characteristics of each part as a function of time.
