Title: Resistively Heated Target Tests Using Helium Flow Loop

Abstract

A helium flow and heat transfer experiment has been conducted using the helium flow loop facility at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. In order to replicate the helium cooled Mo-100 plant design disks during beam heating, an array of resistive heaters were placed within the helium flow loop, and cooled via helium. The resistively heated test piece is comprised of seven ceramic electric heaters with embedded thermocouples allowing temperature measurements of each heater.Computation fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations and analysis from theory are compared to the experiment results in order to have predictable capabilities for future experiments.
