Research areas description

The research activities currently underway on the test transfer loops are the study of:

  • the effect of heat flux on the frictional pressure drop under single and two phase flow conditions;
  • the axial pressure and void fraction distributions in heated tubes oriented vertically or horizontally;
  • the critical heat flux (CHF) in vertical and horizontal tubes.
  • CHF in a test section having a geometry similar to a segment of nuclear fuel bundle;
  • the effect of choking flow on CHF;
  • the axial and angular temperature distributions on the surface of tested tubes oriented vertically or horizontally;
  • the flow mixing mechanisms in interconnected subchannels with heat addition.
