RANGE OF EXPERIMENTS TO BE CARRIED OUT :
1. To determine thermal conductivity of heat pipe.
2. To observe and plot the temperature distribution along the length of the heat pipe.
3. The experiments can be conducted at various values of input & calculation can be made accordingly.
4. To calculate & compare effectiveness of heat pipe & other good thermal conductor pipes.
TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION :
The apparatus consists of Heat pipe and other two pipes of different materials for referrence. The heat pipe is a device of very high thermal conductance. It transfers heat by boiling a fluid at one end & condensing it at another .Auto transformer is provided for varying the input to the heater & measurement of input is carried out by a voltmeter, ammeter.
Thermocouples are fixed along the length of pipes, to read the temperature at the surface.
The experiments can be conducted at various values of input & calculation can be made accordingly.
