In this way, two-phase fluid capillary pumped heat transfer systems appear as more efficient alternative solutions thanks to their high heat transport capacity and their passive pumping capacity.
MarCO will launch in March 2016 from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California on the same United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket as NASA's Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport (InSight) lander.
The research team from UEA's schools of Mathematics and Environmental Sciences created a computer simulated pattern of ocean circulation on a hypothetical ocean-covered Earth-like planet and looked at how different planetary rotation rates would impact heat transport with the presence of oceans taken into account.
InSight, an abbreviation for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport, will use sophisticated geophysical instruments to delve deep beneath the surface of Mars, detecting the fingerprints of the processes of terrestrial planet formation, as well as measuring the planet's "vital signs" its "pulse" (seismology), "temperature" (heat flow probe) and "reflexes" (precision tracking).
Changes in heat transport in these systems can lead to regional climate variability.
After thermal equilibrium, the temperature difference between the cold-side bath and hot-side bath is defined to [DELTA]T, and the amount of heat transport from the cold-side to the hot-side bath when [DELTA]T = 0 is defined to Qin in this study.
