Description

The liquid metal heat transfer system that is shortly to be used to investigate fundamental boiling and condensing phenomena in liquid metals was sufficiently completed so that preliminary non-boiling water heat transfer experiments were conducted. The purpose of these studies was to establish the accuracy of the heat transfer instrumentation for the boiler test section, gain operating experience and obtain information on system integrity. Satisfactory heat balances were obtained and experimental heat transfer conductances for the boiler were found to be in agreement with predicted values. These experiments revealed that one boiler test section pressure tap had a leak in ... continued below

Description

The liquid metal heat transfer system that is shortly to be used to investigate fundamental boiling and condensing phenomena in liquid metals was sufficiently completed so that preliminary non-boiling water heat transfer experiments were conducted. The purpose of these studies was to establish the accuracy of the heat transfer instrumentation for the boiler test section, gain operating experience and obtain information on system integrity. Satisfactory heat balances were obtained and experimental heat transfer conductances for the boiler were found to be in agreement with predicted values. These experiments revealed that one boiler test section pressure tap had a leak in the weld. The results of coolant heat and momentum transfer analyses for the liquid metal program are summarized. A number of forced-flow saturation boiling models for the cases of linear and rotational flow are compared with experimental linear flow water data; large differences in heat transfer and friction were found depending upon the flow type postulated. The evaluation of a previously described two-phase flow vortex decay solution was completed. (auth)
