Abstract

This thesis considers a unique application of a thermosyphon to a conventional thermal storage deice. In such an application, the dynamics of the thermosyphon are coupled with the condition of the storage volume. This thesis specifically focuses on the transient energy addition or charge process, where heat accumulated within the storage volume continuously decreases the driving buoyant force and volumetric flow rate"--Abstract, page iv.
