Keywords: water, boiling, pressure losses, vertical channel


Relations for the pressure drop of the two phase flower of water in vertical heater pipe and annular channel are proposed. The study was carried out at a pressure of from 4 to 16 MPa, mass velocity from 300 to 3000 kg/(m 2 s), heat is the current up to 2.4 MW/m 2 . The obtained results can be used for thermal and hydraulic calculation of elements of power plants.
