abstract

  • This study has been conducted in a partial fulfillment of a master of science degree in nuclear engineering from the department of nuclear engineering at Texas A&M University (TAMU). The study aims to perform a computational fluid dynamics analysis using the commercial software package STAR-CCM+ to compare the behavior of twin jets with equal velocities under isothermal (same temperature) and non-isothermal (different temperature) flows. The behavior of twin jets has a very wide range of application in engineering, from combustion chambers and fuel injectors, to fighter jets and sodium-cooled reactors. This study investigates the twin jets that were constructed by The University of Tennessee at Knoxville (UTK) and are located at the TAMU thermal hydraulics lab. This work was performed to gain a better understanding of the difference between isothermal and non-isothermal flows as this will provide better judgment to the safety analysis of future design reactors. The temperature difference in non-isothermal flows has been seen to affect some flow properties in this study.
