... Image Velocimetry (PIV) to visualize and measure the flow fields downstream of the blockages. The results show that partial blockages will cause flow reversal. In the backflow zone, vortices are generated downstream of the blockage, causing increase in the resistance. The length of backflow zone...

... in the reactor vessel was measured by the Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) method. The PIV measurement was carried out under the operation of the dipped-type direct heat exchanger (DHX) installed in the upper plenum when 20% of the core fuel fell to the lower plenum and accumulated on the core catcher. From...
