Instability of a boiling natural circulation loop with a chimney at low pressure and low heater power was investigated by linear stability analysis and experiment. A homogeneous and thermodynamic equilibrium model for two-phase flow was used. The effect of flashing induced by pressure drop in the heated channels and the chimney was considered. The effects of coupling between two boiling channels were investigated. It was found that in-phase-mode instability was apt to occur when channel inlet subcooling was large and boiling began in the chimney. In-phase-mode instability easily occurred when channel length became short and the chimney became long. Out-of-phase-mode instability was apt to occur when chimney length became small and boiling began in the channel. It was suggested that in-phase-mode instability was density weve oscillation induced by flashing in the chimney and out-of-phase-mode instability was density wave oscillation induced by boiling in the channels. The analytical results agreed qualitatively with experimental results.
