Paper Abstract

Two channel laser Doppler and single channel constant current (cold wire) thermal anemometry was used to obtain simultaneous velocity and temperature data for the cross flow development of heated turbulent air flow through a staggered tube bundle. The model examined is based upon the UK Advanced Gas Reactor boiler tube assemblies but is more generally representative of a much wider range of cross-flow tube bundle arrangements. Distributions of the time mean velocities and temperatures, the rms velocity and temperature fluctuations, the Reynolds stresses and the turbulent heat flux terms were measured for two different Reynolds numbers. The results are sufficiently reliable and detailed that they may be used for the validation of computer predictions of this important class of problem.
