Theoretical and experimental modelling of an open oscillatory heat pipe including gravity
An open oscillatory heat pipe is capable of transferring heat from a source to a sink below the source, against the force of gravity, without the aid of a wick or any moving mechanical parts. A theoretical model of such a device taking gravity, surface tension, friction and pressure into account is presented. The model uses vapour bubble, liquid plug and liquid film control volumes. An experimental model is constructed and tested using water as the working fluid.
