Condensation heat transfer inside rotating heat pipes.
MetadataShow full item record
An analytical study was undertaken to determine twodimensional wall conduction effects during film condensation on an internally finned, rotating heat pipe. An earlier Finite Element method was modified to solve the problem by using different numbers of axial increments and different numbers of elements. Resulting heat transfer rates were shown to be similar to those obtained earlier.
