Critical Heat Flux 23 1 A uniformly heated rod bundle has operating characteristics given below. The critical heat flux mechanism is dryout, and can be correlated by the Hench-Levy correlation as ′′ = q x x x G x x x x G x x c c c c c c c c c c 10 1 19 33 0 7 3 10 0 6 0 7 0 09 2 10 6 1 2 6 1 2 2 6 2 .

Problem Data Channel Mass Flux 1.33 x 10 6 lbm/hr-ft 2 Rod Pitch 0.640 inches Rod Diameter 0.493 inches Channel Pressure 1000 psia Channel Height 146 inches Inlet Temperature 532 F SOLUTION The critical heat flux decreases monotonically with quality and therefore position up the channel. For a uniformly heated channel, the minimum critical heat flux ratio will then occur at the channel exit. The critical quality is given by fg f crit crit h h h x = where m

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
