Abstract: As the power and heat output of modern CPUs climb ever higher and the interest in compact, passively cooled devices grows, there is an urgent need for thinner and more effective vapor chamber technologies. Nanostructured wick technologies based on oxide and organic nanowires have been proposed as a method of improving heat pipe performance in such applications. This work performs finite difference simulations of a 2D heat pipe accounting for variable porosity in the wick. For heat fluxes of 10 and 100 W/cm2, w… Show more
