Liquid containment in a gas-driven vortex has been investigated both experimentally and theoretically. Average air-water mixture densities greater than 100 times the thru-flow gas density were contained in a vortex chamber while maintaining the loss rate of water at that due to vaporization. Interaction studies indicate a stronger coupling of the liquid to the gas than of the liquid to the wall. Results are discussed in terms of their applicability toward estimating the potential performance of a colloidal core nuclear reactor. Author
