Experimental study on thermo physical properties of capillary wicks for loop heat pipe 

In this study, loop heat pipe capillary wicks were prepared and the transient plane source (TPS) method measured the thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and specific heat of the samples. The results showed that thermal conductivity increased with porosity, but porosity seemingly had no effect on diffusivity and specific heat....

Effect of pore parameters on thermal conductivity of sintered LHP wicks

Through the use of the salt-leaching pore forming method, a series of sintered nickel capillary wicks with variable porosity and pore characteristics were synthesized. The thermal conductivities of these wicks (both dry and wet) were evaluated by the transient plane source (TPS) method. The factors that affect thermal conductivity were found to be the porosity and the pore size distribution....
