Analysis of Additively Manufactured Sintered Wicks for Use in Developing Heat Pipes

The development of additively manufactured sintered wicks and heat pipes will allow for the design and creation of integrated heat sinks and pipes in designs not possible through standard manufacturing processes currently relied upon. It is also possible to explore designs of more efficient thermal dissipation designs, such as those seen in nature. This work involves the development of a test rig that will enable the analysis of such wicks prior to implementing high-performing designs in heat pipes. Current progress has included the design, development and prototyping of a permeability rig, which is in its later stages.
