Abstract

A flow loop at the University of Wisconsin used for supercritical water (SCW) experiments is being modified to perform similar tests with supercritical carbon dioxide (SCO2). Scaled equivalent conditions in SCO2 are determined by conserving key non-dimensional parameters from the SCW tests. The predicted heat transfer in the SCO2 will be compared to measured data to evaluate the validity of the scaling method. As a secondary basis for verification, FLUENT CFD simulations for the scaled SCO2 conditions are compared to simulations of the SCW experiments, which demonstrate good agreement with optically-measured turbulence data.
