Heat and mass transfer with liquid–vapour phase change in a representative unit cell of a capillary evaporator is studied using a mixed pore network model. The model combines the computation of temperature and pressure fields in vapour and liquid pores according to mean field approaches with pore scale invasion rules depending on the capillary pressure thresholds associated with each local constriction between two pores. The metallic body through which heat is transferred to the porous wick is… CONTINUE READING
