Flow field and heat transfer measurement of turbulent pipe flow are carried out as a part of benchmark experiment for the flow
and heat transfer measurement of electrically conducting fluid under magnetic field. The objective of this study is to clarify the
effect of MHD force on the flow of molten salt simulant, potassium hydroxide-water solution in particular. At this first stage,
water is used as working fluid to obtain reference data. The fully developed turbulent pipe flow at Re = 5300 is measured by
using PIV technique and turbulent structure and turbulent statistics as well as averaged flow field are obtained. For heat transfer
