In this work thermal performance of a cylindrical heat pipe at steady state has been investigated empirically. The used heat pipe, made of copper, has been designed and manufactured by considering effective parameters on heat pipe thermal performance. Then heat pipe has been charged by water as the working fluid. By installing sensors and the other equipment, the test set up has been prepared. After preparing the test set up by changing voltage, various input powers have been inserted into evaporator and the heat pipe surface temperature distribution has been obtained for each case. Then by using the obtained temperature distributions, thermal resistance variations and equivalent thermal conductivity coefficient have been computed. and variation of them versus input power have been plotted. The results show that the thermal resistance has its minimum value at maximum operating limit (maximum passing power) and equivalent thermal conductivity has its maximum value at this point.
