NOTES :

The pictures (courtesy of Nuclear Electric plc) are as follows:

  1. Inlet header flow and temperature fields.
  2. Outlet header flow and temperature fields for a straight tube design.
  3. Validation of pressure drop predictions in inlet header.
  4. Radial distribution of length-averaged tube temperatures.

Further information about these calculations may be found in :- Hulme G and Curzon A F Analysis of Fast Reactor Steam Generator Performance Proc. 3rd UK National and 1st European Conference on Thermal Sciences, 531-537, IChemE, Birmingham, 1992.
