Experiments with air and water in small hot leg reproductions were carried out aiming to acquire a better understanding of the countercurrent flow limitation (CCFL) in this geometry. The effects of various geometrical parameters of the test section and of the inlet water flow rate on the onset of flooding, on the partial delivery of water and on the zero liquid penetration were investigated. It was observed that while the onset of flooding is affected by the inlet water flow rate, the zero liquid penetration …
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.
