In two phase flow investigation, there is a need for robust methods capable of predicting interfaces, in addition to treating the traditional governing equations of fluid mechanics (Navier-Stokes Eqs.). Such methods in a finite volume approach can be classified into two typical categories called interface tracking and interface capturing methods. According to their abilities, interface capturing methods are of more interest in free surface modeling, especially when complex interface topologies such as wave breaking are included. These methods solve a scalar transport equation in order to find the distribution of two phases all over the computational domain. That is, all properties of the...

A detailed description of a concentric annular heat pipe (CAHP) operation is presented in low to moderate temperature ranges (50-200°C). The steady-state response of a CAHP to various heat fluxes in the evaporator and condenser sections are discussed. Two-dimensional mathematical modeling of the fluid flow and heat transfer in the annular vapor space and the wicks are described. The fundamental aspects and limitations of the operation of a CAHP are also discussed. Previously used numerical and experimental approaches for the analysis of the CAHPs and some related concepts are reviewed. The Navier-Stokes and similar equations are recommended for the simulation of fluid flow and heat transfer...
