One of 1,237 reports in the series: Argonne National Laboratory Reports available on this site.

Description

In the analysis of LMFBR core-containment and heat-removal problems associated with hypothetical core-disruptive accidents, viscosity data on molten ceramics are needed to help analyze the convective heat transfer and flow patterns within liquid pools. An oscillating cup viscometer has been used to measure the viscosity of molten alumina in the temperature range from 2400 to 2750/sup 0/K. The data are represented by the equation: log eta = 11448/T - 8.2734 where the viscosity, eta, is given in Pascal seconds and the temperature, T, is in Kelvins.
