The article deals with the creation of the basis of the CFD model of the heat pipe, which is designed to simulate and show the predicted course of the work-fluid-activity within the heat pipe. This simulation is part of the study of the heat pipe device. This device, based on CFD simulation, can be constructed to describe the phenomena running inside the heat pipe based on real-world experimental measurements. A comparison of the CFD and the experimental model can explain the problems of areas and phenomena in the heat pipe. Based on this comparison, it is possible to optimize single device errors. The optimization transferred to the CFD model will show us how to solve problems and how to improve the experimental models of heat pipes.
