Abstract

Heat transfer coefficient has an important influence on the flow and heat transfer of supercritical water in the core channels. The effects of different factors and their interactions on the heat transfer coefficient of the supercritical water were studied by full factorial experimental design method, such as pressure, mass flow rate, heat flux, and inlet temperature. The results show that: Within the range of the tested working conditions, effect D (inlet temperature), effect B (mass flow rate) and effect A (pressure) had a significant impact on the heat transfer coefficient, where the percentage contribution of effect D was 48.21%; effect B was 21.58%; effect A was 15.1%. The percentage contribution of other factors and their interactions on the heat transfer coefficient of the supercritical water can be ignored. At the same time, a prediction formula of heat transfer coefficient on supercritical water was fitted, and it was found that the prediction error of this formula conformed to the assumption of normality, and the prediction error was 10.5%.
