"A two component heat pipe with water and ethanol as the working fluid was investigated at different angles of inclination and various ethanol concentration for two power loads. The heat pipe was 15 inches long and 0.75 inches in diameter with a 100 mesh stainless steel screen wick. The wall and the vapor temperatures were measured at different stations along the length of the heat pipe by copper-constantan thermocouples. The results were used to evaluate an existing model which includes the constraint of thermodynamic phase equilibrium of the solution on the governing equations. Based on the measured pressure and temperature distribution complete separation of the two components does not normally take place during the operation of such a heat pipe"--Abstract, page ii.
