A thermal radiator in an automobile has the function of preventing an engine from overheating and regulating engine temperature. Heat pipes are heat transfer devices with high thermal conductivity and with their use the radiator’s frontal area can be made more compact or the heat transfer capacity of the radiator can be increased. The heat pipe radiator is designed to operate at conditions similar to that of a conventional radiator. Theoretical thermal calculations were carried out for verifying any improvement in its thermo-hydraulic performance. It was observed that for the same size of radiator the effective frontal area reduced by 37.17% and capacity reduced by 14.82%.
