Record #96653:

On the design of wind-augmented thermosyphons / G.S.H. Lock, K. Chong, A. Dyckerhoff, J. Huyer, B. Jones.

Title: On the design of wind-augmented thermosyphons / G.S.H. Lock, K. Chong, A. Dyckerhoff, J. Huyer, B. Jones.
Author(s): Lock, G. S. H.
Chong, K.
Dyckerhoff, A.
Huyer, J.
Jones, B.
Date: 1989.
In: Cold Regions Science and Technology. (1989.), Vol. 16(1) (1989)
Abstract: Considers use of wind to create forced convection heat transfer in thermosyphons designed to establish and maintain frozen ground or frozen water. Methods of harnessing wind are discussed. Detailed design procedure is then developed for calculation of flow loss and heat-transfer rate for any given air-flow rate in range possible for wind-driven systems. Heat-transfer rates are applied to freezing of material around thermosyphon tube wall. Predictions show effect of tube geometry and wind speed on freezing radius, and show system is practicable.
