Tóm tắt

This experimental study is performed to investigate heat transfer performance of a multi-heat pipe cooling device in the condition of different filling ratio (40%, 60%, 80% and 100%) under constant heat flux conditions. Here, pure water and graphene oxide (GO) nanofluid are employed as working fluid. Temperature fields and thermal resistance are measured for different filling ratio, heat fluxes and volume concentrations. It was found that (i) the thermal performance of heat pipe increases with increasing the concentration of GO nanoparticles in the base fluid, while the maximum heat transfer enhancement yields at 0.2% volume concentration, (ii) GO/water nanofluid shows lower thermal resistance compared to pure water, (iii) the optimal thermal resistance is obtained at 100% filling charge ratio with 0.2% volume concentration, and (iv) heat transfer coefficient of the heat pipe significantly increases with an increase in heat flux and GO nanoparticles concentration.

Keywords: Multi-heat pipe; graphene oxide; gilling ratio; volume fraction; thermal resistance.
