Heat Pipe Tutorial


In this tutorial, a heated aluminum ring will be connected to an air-cooled aluminum plate using an aluminum/ammonia fixed conductance heat pipe (FCHP). Demonstration includes creating a heat pipe and using Contactors to connect the heat pipe to multiple surfaces.

Topics covered:

  • Creating AutoCAD lines and polylines for pipe centerlines
  • Creating pipes
  • Modeling a fixed-conductance heat pipe
  • Creating contactors along pipe centerlines

Introduction to Two-phase Flow

September 24, 2-3pm MDT

This webinar introduces basic concepts in two-phase flow modeling including quality, void fraction, flow regimes, slip flow, pressure drops and accelerations, and heat transfer.

No knowledge of CRTech software is required. However, references to the corresponding FloCAD features will be made to assist users of that product.
