OPTHAE


Subject

Designing and testing (thermally and mechanically) of a miniature condenser for an aerospace application.

Start/End dates

End February 2013 – December 2017 ( under discussion)


Description

We are developing a miniature condenser for a Capillary Pumped Loop to cool an actuator of an airliner. We investigate three condenser designs: plan tubes; microfins; and, microchannels.




Who is working on this project ?

Partners

Scientific Industrial
  • Euro Heat Pipes (Be)
  • Airbus (Fr).

Results

We have analysed numerically different microchannel condensers and have chosen semi-circular and square cross sections as the most promising designs. We also used heat transfer and pressure drop correlations to design a plain and microfins condensers. We are now moving to detailed design of the three condenser designs.

An experimental set-up has been constructed in order to study convective condensation at low mass fluxes inside differently shaped and different cross section tubes with visualization.
