Abstract
This paper presents a numerical study of a Capillary Pumped Loop evaporator. A two-dimensional unsteady mathematical model of a flat evaporator is developed to simulate heat and mass transfer in unsaturated porous wick with phase change. The liquid-vapor phase change inside the porous wick is described by Langmuir's law. The governing equations are solved by the Finite Element Method. The results are presented then for a sintered nickel wick and methanol as a working fluid. The heat flux required to the transition from the all-liquid wick to the vapor-liquid wick is calculated. The dynamic and thermodynamic behavior of the working fluid in the capillary structure are discussed in this paper.
