im trying to model a loop heat pipe (lhp) system to cool various things on a spacecraft mission to Mars for a project I am doing in uni, does anyone know any equations that i could use to compute a value for length of lhp etc?? I've found lots of journals on the internet giving example performances, so many kW for a certain amount of lhp using ammonia for instance, but can't find anywhere that gives equations or steps to calculating these numbers.

i know the idea on here is to have a go first but i can't seem to get anything. hope this is ok, please take pity!

cheers
