Abstract

With excellent heat transfer characteristics and yet no phase change (boiling) as temperature increases, supercritical fluids, either water or CO2, are supposed to be used widely in the next generation nuclear energy systems either as reactor coolant or as working fluid in the power conversion cycle. However, some fundamental transport phenomena of supercritical fluid such as flow instability, heat transfer deterioration, turbulence mixing induced thermal stripping, etc. need to be clearly understood before it can be applied in the nuclear energy systems. This paper summarize author's some past and current researches in the field mentioned above.
