  • Additional Experience


    Mark Anderson is a mechanical engineer with research interests centered primarily in thermal hydraulics and multi-phase fluid flow. He especially emphasizes on condensation heat transfer within reactor containments .

    The goal of research is to study the energy removal from a containment facility to the atmosphere after a LOCA: The current research focuses on the following areas.

    First, the measurement of the condensation heat transfer coefficient in a scaled experiment designed to mimic Westinghouse's AP600 reactor containment.

    Second, investigate the effects of light non-condensible gases on the heat transfer coefficient at several different conditions, including atmospheric pressure, high pressure systems and different molar fractions of light non-condensible gases.

    Third, to look at the flow field associated with natural circulation inside of the test section using a Particle Image Velocimetry technique (PIV). The goal is to obtain a velocity field so that the condensation phenomena can be better understood.

    Finally, develop a dewpoint measurement device for high relative humidities and relatively high pressures. This will allow quantification of the test conditions for the above mentioned experiments.
