Abstract

A test facility has been set up to generate data on heat transfer and pressure drop for supercritical fluids under natural circulation conditions. The experiments have been conducted in the test loop with supercritical carbon-dioxide as well as supercritical water as operating fluids. The heat transfer data generated in the test facility has been compared with various heat transfer correlations available in literature for supercritical fluids. The present paper describes the experimental results and comparisons in detail.
