Abstract


Moving toward application of miniature and high performance chips in electronic fields, thermal management of these sensitive devices has become a challenging issue to direct heat transfer investigations. In this regard, Pulsating Heat Pipes (PHPs) have attracted attention, due to simplicity of structure, reliability, and low manufacturing cost. Moreover, working fluid has an important effect on PHP's performance. Having high thermal conductivity, nanofluids are outstanding substitutes for PHP's conventional working fluids. Focusing on recent advances on nanofluidic PHPs, this paper reviews operating principles and conducted experiments in this field. Furthermore, unsolved concerns regarding this field will be mentioned.
