TRANSIENT RESPONSE OF HEAT PIPES FOR ACTUATOR THERMAL MANAGEMENT 921024

This paper reports the experimental and analytical investigation on the transient behavior of a heat pipe subjected to a heat load resulting from an actuator duty cycle. A simple analysis is presented which predicts the temperature response to a steady periodic square wave heat load of varying periods. The analytical calculations are compared to experimental results for a heat pipe operating without dry-out.
