A Program of Two-Phase Flow Investigation Quarterly Report: Second Quarterly Report, July-September, 1963
Description: Task A: Modification and Preparation of Experimental Facility. With the exception of the insulation of modified components, the experimental facility is complete. Insulation will be completed by the end of September. the system has been charged with Refrigerant-22 and preliminary loop performance tests have been completed without the test sections.. Task B: Design and Construction of Test Sections. The stainless steel test section has been prepared complete with end flanges and pressure tap locations. Wall thickness tolerances have been ultrasonically checked. Test section inlet and discharge assemblies are being completed and the whole assembly will be ready for installation by the end of September. Glass sections from the same drawn length which will make up the final test sections have been received for pressure tests. The final coated sections and the associated inlet and discharge fittings will be ready for assembly by the end of September. The above sections were ordered after complete preliminary tests defined the properties required of these test sections. Task C: Design and Construction of Test Stand: The mechanical design and drafting of the structural components and drive system is complete. The electrical control system for the platform orientation has been constructed and two modes of operation have received preliminary checkout on the breadboard circuit. Machining of the supported plates and assemblies and the main structural assembly of the stand are complete. Assembly of the platform and electrical components will be completed by the end of September and final alignment and adjustments will be caries out during October. Task E: Pressure and Temperature Instrumentation for Test Section: The temperature transducers have been ordered and their delivery is scheduled for the third week of September. The bridge circuits have been designed and their fabrication is in process. The preamplifiers and the power supply for the temperature transducers ...
