Transition Boiling Heat Transfer Program; Fourth Quarterly Progress Report, October - December 1963

Description: Summary: Heat transfer tests employing the two-rod test section without film tripping devices have been completed. Representations defining critical heat flux, transition boiling and film boiling behavior at high pressures and over a steam quality range of 25 to 90 percent are shown. Fabrication of a new observational test section was completed and initial test results with high-speed motion pictures were obtained. A test loop instability which was found to affect transition boiling behavior was detected and partially eliminated.

Transition Boiling Heat Transfer Program; Second Quarterly Progress Report, April - June 1963

Description: Introduction: The Transition Boiling Heat Transfer Program is sponsored jointly by the USAEC and Euroatom and is being conducted by the General Electric Company. The work commenced on this program February 11, 1963. The objective of this program is to perform basic investigation and measurement of the transition boiling regime in high pressure bulk boiling water flows, with particular emphasis i the high range of steam qualities.

Transition Boiling Heat Transfer Program; Third Quarterly Progress Report, July - September 1963

Description: Summary: Initial critical heat flux, transition boiling temperature fluctuation, and film boiling coefficient data have been obtained on a two-rod cluster assembly at 1000 psia and 25 to 90 percent steam qualities. A representation showing the range of critical heat flux data is presented. Typical temperature recordings which indicate transition and film boiling behavior are shown. Fabrication of a new high pressure observational test section is nearly complete. An optical table and illumination system has been build and operationally tested for photographic use on the new observational section.
