Single Phase 16 1 Determine the pressure drop across the steam generator illustrated below. You may assume flush inlet loss coefficients from the inlet chamber to the steam generator tubes, and from the outlet chamber to the cold legs. You may assume flush outlet loss coefficients from the hot leg exit to the inlet plenum and from the steam generator tubes to the outlet plenum.
