    $\begingroup$ Hi and welcome to Space Exploration! It sounds like you have an interesting question but it needs some clarification. Could you a) show what you have already achieved (e.g. what heat pipe applications you already know with examples of the application, scale and ideally a picture) and b) try to make the question more specific (it might help to write the question in terms of the problem you want to solve) $\endgroup$ – Puffin Jun 25 at 20:03
  • $\begingroup$ For the pipe you consider, evaluate conduction, convection and radiation. $\endgroup$ – Solar Mike Jun 25 at 20:06
