- Published 2009

The turbulent swept flow around a cylindrical wire resting on a wall of a channel is investigated using direct numerical simulation. This geometry is a model of the flow through the wire-wrapped fuel pins, the heat exchanger, typical of many reactor designs. Mean flow along and across the wire axis is imposed, leading to the formation of separated and reattached secondary flow regions. The Reynolds number based on the centerline velocity along the wire axis direction is 6000 and four cases are… CONTINUE READING
