In this study, the heat transfer characteristics of a U-shape heat pipes were investigated. Heat is supplied to the U heat pipe through its middle zone(evaporator), and is released to the environment through its both arms(condensers). Both heat transfer coefficients and heat transport limitations were measured and compared with correlations previously developed for straight type heat pipes. Special concerns were focused to the cases, when each of condensers were submitted to a different cooling conditions, relatively. As a result. the heat transfer limitation of a U-shape heat pipe was found out to be 10∼15% less than the value for a straight heat pipe with an equivalent size.
