Summary Experiments were performed on a closed loop self-exciting mode oscillating flow heat pipe (SEMOS HP) with uniform and non-uniform structures under the same tested conditions. The heat transfer characteristics are analyzed by comparing the temperature of wall of the heat pipe and output power when the heat input of the electric heating board and heating position are changed. The result shows that the heat transfer rate could be improved by using a non-uniform structure under low or middle heat input, and it gives the highest heat transfer performance when the non-uniform diameter section is at the bottom of the heat pipe and the heating source located below the non-uniform section.
