  • Abstract This paper summarizes the main activities in preparation of microgravity experiments dedicated to performances characterization of innovative heat pipes systems based on “self-rewetting fluids”, i.e. fluid mixtures with a non-linear dependence of the surface tension with temperature. In preparation of the flight experiments, laboratory researches have been carried out to identify potential heat transfer fluids. The activities include measurements of surface tensions, contact angles and… CONTINUE READING
