Development of Different Novel Loop Heat Pipes within the ISTC-1360 Project 2003-01-2383

The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) Project 1360 was carried out by the Russian Institute of Thermal Physics, in collaboration with the National Aerospace Laboratory NLR in the Netherlands, the US Air Force Research Laboratory, and the Korean Aerospace Institute (KARI). The main project task was to demonstrate the possibilities of a variety of Loop Heat Pipe (LHP) design configurations, to considerably extend LHP application ranges both in 0-g environment (space equipment) and in 1-g conditions at different orientations with respect to the gravity vector. The development concerns two miniature LHPs, a reversible LHP and a ramified (multiple-evaporator-condenser) LHP.
