Improvement on thermal performance of a disk-shaped miniature heat pipe with nanofluid

Abstract

The present study used nanofluid as the working medium for a disk-shaped miniature heat pipe (DMHP). The nanofluid is a suspension with gold nanoparticles of an average diameter of 17 nm in an aqueous solution. An experimental system was set up to measure the thermal resistance of the disk-shaped miniature heat pipe (DMHP) with both nanofluid and DI-water A… (More)
