    This paper applies CFD modelling and numerical calculations to predict the thermal performance of a cross flow heat pipe based heat exchanger. The heat exchanger under study transfers heat from air to water and it is equipped with six water-charged wickless heat pipes, with a single-pass flow pattern on the air side (evaporator) and two flow passes on the water side (condenser). For the purpose of CFD modelling, the heat pipes were considered as solid devices of a known thermal conductivity which was estimated by experiments conducted on the exact same heat pipe configuration under an entire testing range. The CFD results were compared with the experimental and the numerical results and it was found that the modelling predictions are within 10% of the experimental results.
