Th~ pr~ss.ure, density, .and velo~ity .distributions within a cylindrical heat-pipe oven are analyzed for I~VISCld: compressible flow m either the radial or axial direction. For sufficiently large but readdy attamable heat flows, density variations within the heat pipe as large as 50% which can lead to inaccuracies in quantitative spectroscopic investigations are predicted.
