In order to realize highly-efficient heat energy utilization, advanced heat transport technology is required. In this study, exploration and its modeling of thermal-hydraulics phenomena in tri-phase interface in micro porous structure are conducted in order to enhance the performance of capillary-driven two-phase heat transport device, which is promising long-distance heat transport technology. Finally, by proposition of optimal phase interface in porous structure, and integrative analysis and design of phase interface phenomena at multi-scales, innovative heat energy transport device is developed.
