The present study aims to investigate the behaviour of a working fluid such as water, methanol and acetone, and phase change on a magnesium alloy surface in a heat pipe condition. Therefore experimental visualisation and measurement were conducted. Carrying out a computational simulation based on the molecular dynamics (MD) method, a microscopic insight of how water molecules interact with a magnesium heating surface is obtained and the results of MD simulation are qualitatively compared with the experiment.
