Measurements of Pressure Drop with No Heat Addition on Mockup Segments of the General Electric Air-Cooled Aircraft Reactor

Description: An investigation was conducted at the NACA Lewis laboratory to obtain pressure-drop data for flow of air with no heat addition through mockups of two reactor segments of the proposed General Electric Company aircraft reactor. Pressure-drop data were obtained over a range of Reynolds numbers from 4000 to 80,000, air inlet Mach numbers from 0.02 to 0.40, inlet pressures up to about 40 inches of mercury absolute, and ambient air temperatures. factors, corrected for entrance, vena contracta, momentum, and exit losses, are considerably higher at the high Reynolds numbers than those reported for turbulent flow in smooth pipes.
