Abstract

The objective of this document is to propose the thermal analysis of a heat dissipating device by using heat pipes containing different fluids, which are water, refrigerant R134a and methanol for the evaluation of these devices under certain design characteristics, due to the fact that at present the processors have a higher energy consumption and greater processing capacities, which causes a significant elevation of the temperature before demanding workloads. Through the use of the ANSYS simulation software, the thermal study of the device was carried out; in addition, the temperature gradient generated in it when in contact with a hot surface, which is going to be a high performance processor, demonstrating that stable temperatures can be obtained through the use of heat pipes at demanding workloads, ensuring correct operation and cooling of the processor.
