TL;DR: In this paper, the authors identify the causes and mechanisms of thermal-hydrodynamic instabilities in boiling flow in a water-cooled reactor, an evaporator, or an electronic cooling system.
TL;DR: In this article, the authors present an evaluation of core thermal performance, and the prediction of adequate heat transfer mechanisms and capabilities within the fuel rod and at the clad-water interface.
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors describe boiling mechanisms at various flow conditions and provide verified heat-transfer correlations for water, focusing on the prediction of nucleate boiling, effect of surface fouling, and transient cooling.
TL;DR: In this article, an extensive experimental program was performed to investigate departure from nucleate boiling (DNB) in electrically heated rod bundles simulating a nuclear power reactor fuel assembly.
TL;DR: In this paper, a preliminary estimate of heat transfer in the asymptotic configuration of a meltdown core was conducted, and the result indicates that a complete core meltdown will not melt through the bottom of the reactor vessel.
TL;DR: In this paper, a review examines recent advances made in predicting boiling heat fluxes, including some key results from the past, including nucleate boiling, maximum heat flux, transition boiling, and film boiling.
Abstract: ▪ Abstract This review examines recent advances made in predicting boiling heat fluxes, including some key results from the past. The topics covered are nucleate boiling, maximum heat flux, transition boiling, and film boiling. The review focuses on pool boiling of pure liquids, but flow boiling is also discussed briefly.
TL;DR: A survey of theories of immiscible mixtures can be found in this article, where it is emphasized that the immiscibility of such mixtures has important consequences concerning the forms of the constitutive equations, and that it can also result in the mixtures exhibiting microstructural effects.
TL;DR: The most popular models to predict the two-phase flow dynamic instabilities, namely the homogenous flow model and the drift-flux models are clarified with the solution examples and the validation of the model results with experimental findings are also provided.
TL;DR: In this article, a wide range of pulsating heat pipes is experimentally studied and the influence of gravity and number of turns on the performance of closed loop pulsing heat pipes (CLPHPs) is analyzed.
TL;DR: In this article, a simultaneous visualization and measurement study has been carried out to investigate effects of inlet/outlet configurations on flow boiling instabilities in parallel microchannels, having a length of 30 mm and a hydraulic diameter of 186 μm.
