An experimental facility supporting the Canadian Super Critical Water-cooled Reactor (SCWR) research efforts has been constructed at the University of Ottawa. Loop commissioning tests have been performed, during which a number of heat transfer phenomena were observed. The measured heat transfer coefficients are compared with predictions of available correlations. The test results demonstrated that the facility operates within design specifications.
