An analytical study of supercritical flow stability in two parallel channels is reported here. This would be of immense value to new reactor designs that propose to use supercritical light water on the primary side. The finding is that two-phase flow instability and supercritical flow instability are not identical, as there are notable phenomenological differences as well as mathematical differences.
