Efficient Heat Transfer Solution


Heat Transfer Enhancement in Nuclear Fuel rod bundles with Nanofluids

It proposes to investigate the applicability of the roughening technique and nanofluids to enhance heat transfer in nuclear fuel bundles. The investigation involves experimental testing. The experimental testing consists of Single Heater Element Loop Test (SHELT) constructed at USC. Observations will be made on differential pressure, velocity distribution, and temperatures for different volume percentage of nanofluids.
