Abstract
TWO-PHASE FLOW TECHNOLOGIES ARE USED TO CREATE PASSIVE DEVICES HAVING VARIABLE THERMAL RESISTANCES WHICH ARE A FUNCTION OF THE HEAT FLUX PRESENT. THE DEVICES ARE IN MATERIAL FORM AND THEREFORE EASILY INCORPORATED AS STRUCTURAL MEMBERS, ELECTRICAL OR MAGNETIC CIRCUIT ELEMENTS, OR OPTICAL COMPONENTS. DEVICE DESIGN APPROACH IS PRESENTED IN SYSTEMS ENGINEERING TERMS, SUBSYSTEMS PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS IDENTIFIED, CONCEPTS PRESENTED FOR EACH SUBSYSTEM WHICH WILL ALLOW THE DESIRED FUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THERMAL RESISTANCE AND FLUX, UNIQUE FABRICATION AND MATERIALS CONCEPTS DISCUSSED. AN OVERALL PLAN FOR EXPERIMENT, FABRICATION AND TEST IN PHASE II PROPOSED AND ADDITIONAL APPLICATIONS PRESENTED.
