Abstract:

The purpose of this effort was to gain an insight into the Bi-phase cycle concept and to develop an experimental facility to test the key component of this power cycle--the Bi-phase nozzle. A system was developed and checked out that allows testing different Bi-phase nozzle shapes. The experimental system is provided with sufficient instrumentation to allow for the determination of the nozzle performance. In addition to the standard gas and liquid flow rates, measurement provisions exist for survey of the nozzle exit plane. Measurements can be made for the gasliquid ratio and velocities at the nozzle exit. Author
