A numerical analysis of heat transfer processes and hydrodynamics in a twophase closed thermosyphon in a fairly wide range of variation of governing parameters has been investigated. A mathematical model is formulated based on the laws of mass conservation, momentum and energy in dimensionless variables "stream function -vorticity vector velocity -temperature". The analysis of the modes of forced and mixed convection for different values of Reynolds number and heat flows in the evaporation

Nusselet Number, streamlines, velocity, temperature fields and temperature profile has been calculated during the investigation. a Corresponding
