This paper describes a series of closely controlled experiments made to investigate the performance of the closed thermosyphon. All the regimes previously observed in the open system were identified, and suggestions are made concerning the nature of the process by which the heated and cooled regions of the thermosyphon are hydrodynamically coupled together. A theoretical analysis of the laminar boundary layer regime is given and comparisons made with the experimental results.
