Results of experimental study of mixing of liquids with different temperatures in a T-junction are presented. Experiments were performed with liquids which have significantly different physical properties. The liquid with higher temperature was injected through the branch of the T-junction. The test section was made of thin wall stainless tubes. The distribution of wall temperature over the surface was measured using a high speed infrared camera. Both time averaged and fluctuational characteristics of the temperature field were obtained from infrared image processing.

The structure of temperature field inside the channel was measured by a microthermocouple. It was mounted on the traversing unit which allowed its translation along the channel diameter. Measurements were made over different diameters in the same cross section. This allowed to construct the three-dimensional structure of the temperature field.

Results obtained provide experimental data necessary for validation of thermo hydraulic codes for the design of power equipment.
