Description: 

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
