Comparison of velocity and temperature fields for two types of spacers in an annular channel
Západočeská univerzita v Plzni, Univerzitní 8, 306 14 Plzeň, Czech Republic
The paper deals with measurement of flow field using a modern laser method (PIV) in an annular channel of very small dimension - a fuel cell model. The velocity field was measured in several positions and plains around the spacer. The measurement was extended also to record temperatures by thermocouples soldered into stainless-steel tube wall. The measurement was focused on cooling process of the preheated fuel cell tube model, where the tube was very slowly flooded with water. Main result of the paper is comparison of two spacer's designs with respect to measured velocity and temperature fields.
