Abstract

Experiments have been conducted to investigate thermal-hydraulic instabilities at system pressure ranging from 1 to 7.2 MPa in a boiling natural circulation loop with a chimney. Stability maps in reference to the system pressure, the channel inlet subcooling, and heat flux are presented. Two different types of instabilities were observed in the facility at relatively low and high system pressures. Both of the instability mechanisms were clarified by investigation of the transient flow pattern and the response of the driving force of the circulation to momentum energy.
