A Thermal Analysis of an F/A-18 Wing Section for Actuator Thermal Management 921023

This paper presents the design and performance of a flexible heat pipe cold plate (FHPCP) that was developed for transporting heat from electronics mounted directly on an F/A-18 aileron actuator to a nearby heat sink. The most obvious heat sink is surrounding structure. A one dimensional steady state heat conduction analysis presented in this paper indicates that utilizing structure is feasible for this application.
