A generalized flow correlation for two-phase natural circulation loops MR Gartia, PK Vijayan, DS Pilkhwal Nuclear Engineering and Design (17), , Development of a unified model for the steady-state operation of single-phase natural circulation loops is made by Basu et al.. An unsymmetrical end-notched flexure test is described and its suitability for interfacial fracture toughness testing is evaluated [ 19 ]. Reference: SPE Drift-Flux Parameters for Three-Phase Steady-State Flow in Wellbores; H. Shi, J.A. Holmes, L.R. Diaz, L.J. Durlofsky, K. Aziz The Drift-flux models represent multiphase flow in wellbores or pipes in terms of a number of.

If the mass flow rate is not high enough to circulate the necessary fluid to transport heat from evaporator to condenser, the minipump can be used to promotes natural circulation. For the steady-state condition as is demonstrated in Fig. 21, the mass flux G decreases with increasing heat flux H q for minichannels with minipump (HHCV+P). If used for single-phase flow, these three correlations devolve to the Fanning Gas or Fanning Liquid correlation. When switching from multiphase flow to single-phase flow, the correlation will default to the Fanning. When switching from single-phase flow to multiphase flow, the correlation will default to the Beggs and Brill. The present paper offers an analysis of heat transfer and fluid flow in two phase thermosyphon loop with minichannels. A one-dimensional model of two-phase flow and heat transfer in a closed thermosyphon loop with minichannels was examined. The created general model is based on mass, momentum, and energy balances in the evaporators, rising tube, condensers and the falling tube. A. K. Nayak, M.R. Gartia, and P.K.

Mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of natural circulation boiling water reactor (NCBWR) are very important in order to study its performance for different designs and various off-design conditions and for design optimization. In the present work, parametric studies of the primary heat transport loop of NCBWR have been performed using lumped parameter models and RELAP5/MOD code. Susyadi and T.
