Description of this data

Operating measurements from three multi-week test campaigns of the natural circulation FLiBe loop. This system is investigating thermal hydraulic behavior of the molten salt BeF_2 -LiF (33 - 67 mol %). The system behaves in a stable fashion, but shows unusual local transients, such as flow break-down in the riser and thermal jumps at the cooler exit. Heat transfer shows promising trends that FLiBe will behave as a normal heat transfer fluid, as long as salt purity can be maintained. The most recent test shows heat transfer degradation that is likely a result of oxides and impurities.
The data archive contains as-built dimensions, Matlab analysis codes, and the raw data files.
