While this paper “A Review of Heat Pipe Application Including New Opportunities”, in Thermal Fluids Central, was published in 2011, authors Masataka Mochizuki*, Thang Nguyen, Koichi Mashiko, Yuji Saito, Tien Nguyen and Vijit Wuttijumnong’s work is applicable today as it was then. This is especially true of section 5.1 as it relates to the use of heat pipes in renewable energy where they site a number of helpful ideas. Whether you are new or seasoned in the use of heat pipes, this paper is a helpful resource. A key tool for every thermal engineers tool kit.

New to heat pipes? Let me recommend two additional resources:
(1) The ATS video on our YouTube Channe: “Heat Pipe Overview and Explanation” https://youtu.be/eKrdJpDSowY
(2) The ATS engineering eBook (PDF): “Heat Pipes and Their Use in Thermal Management” http://www.qats.com/cms/wp-content/uploads/Heat-Pipe-Engineering-eBook.pdf
