Simulation of heat pipe

      Are there any tutorials available to simulate heat pipes with wick structures? Kindly provide some references for simulation in Ansys.

      No I do not know any tutorials on that.

      Perhaps here you might find more answers: How to simulate the wick structure in a loop heat pipe? (researchgate.net).
      With Eulerian we have non linear porous media which can be used to account for capillary suction and relative permeability. With VOF you need to do all that using UDF or Fluent Expressions.
