Unformatted text preview: 1. 4. NEEP 411: HW#7 Single Phase Heat Transfer; Heat Transfer with Change in Phase Due: Friday, November 11th, 2011 In our expression for natural circulation through a PWR, we had a frictional loss term in the denominator of our dimensionless flow/power expression: L 1/3 F=[flATo pg 0 P] [l The term in is a frictional loss term, which we took as 10 x the cold leg frictional loss. The purpose of this first problem is to evaluate that term a bit more rigorously. Suppose we consider the frictional loss around the loop as having these components: (a) The frictional loss in the cold leg as calculated in class (b) The frictional loss in the hot leg (same pipe diameter and length as the cold leg) (0) The frictional loss in the annular gap of the downcomer. Take the flow area based on a 20 cm thick annulus with inner radius 1.85 m and outer radius 2.05 m. Take the height of the downcomer as 4 m. Note that all 18,000 kg/s passes through the downcomer. (d) The frictional loss in the assembly region. Take the average assembly geometry and flowrate as representative, as used to calculate the single-phase, forced—flow heat transfer coefficient. The assemblies are 3.5 m high. (e) The frictional loss in the steam generator. Assume the steam generator has 4500 tubes of inner diameter 2.54 cm each. Neglect any flow distribution effects from the U—tube and base the estimated drop on the vertical legs 10 m up and 10 m down in your calculations. Remember to account for property differences between the cold leg (15.5 MPa, 290 OC) and the hot leg (15.5 MPa, 320 °C). What is the greatest source of pressure loss among these five sources, and what is the total frictional loss? Using the result from Problem 1, find the dimensionless flow and power ratios that give us P/F = 1. In his discussion of bubble dynamics in Ch 11, El—Wakil provides this expression (Eqn 11—2) for the liquid superheat required to nucleate bubbles: T—T : 20—];m sat hfgpgrc Assuming a nucleation site of radius rc = 1 um, what is the difference in superheat between atmospheric pressure (0.101 MPa) and PWR system pressure (15.5 MPa)? 1L4, El—Wakil ...

    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.
