Abstract:

In our proposed effort, we intend to perform high temperature (100-200 Deg C) characterization of an ultra-advanced heat pipe to determine feasibility of using it in high temperature space radiators. In previous work, we have shown that the so-called "Qu Tube" achieves exceptionally high thermal transport rates at lower temperatures. BENEFIT: Our innovation will significantly reduce the size of radiators used on spacecraft and satellites, thereby reducing their mass and their cost. It can also be applied in many industrial heat exachanger designs.
