Learning Objectives I 3-e Apply knowledge of single-phase and two-phase convective heat transfer to convection from fuel rods to coolants, including adjustments to correlations regarded in assembly geometry I 5-b Use correlations and/or models to analyze problems in nuclear thermal hydraulics I 5-e Identify most critical TH parameters/phenomena to investigate/analyze to ensure safe and eﬃcient reactor operation
General Equation for T co - T m Convective heat transfer is typically understood through the heat transfer coeﬃcient: q 00 co = htc ( T co - T m ) (1) T co - T m = q 00 co htc = q 0 2 π R co htc (2) Computation of htc can be non-trivial, particularly for the 2-phase case, but this equation is general for any htc . Solution of the nuclear TH (single-channel analysis) problem is greatly aided by
