Abstract

We investigated heat transfer in a channel with a triangular cross-section. The working medium is a helium–xenon mixture with a low Prandtl number. This channel configuration corresponds to one of possible cases of fuel cells layout in a gas-cooled nuclear reactor. New experimental data on heat transfer in helium–xenon mixtures were obtained. Results of numerical modeling were compared with the experimental data and the known empirical correlations.
