An experimental investigation of boiling phenomena in inductively heated particle beds has been performed. The major aim of these experiments is to provide data for validating numerical codes used in reactor safety. The experiments can be divided in three parts: boiling experiments, dryout experiments and quenching experiments. In boiling experiments, the pressure gradients have been measured along the bed height for different flow modes, different heat inputs and different system pressures. In dryout experim…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
