Abstract [en]

Temperatures were measured at the inner surface of an annulus between two coaxial tubes, where three water streams mixed. These temperatures were sampled at either 100 Hz or 1000 Hz. The acquisition time was set to 120 s. Two water streams at 549 K, with a Reynolds number between 3.56 × 105 and 7.11 × 105, descended in the annular gap and mixed with a water stream at 333 K or 423 K, with a Reynolds number ranging from 1.27 × 104 to 3.23 × 104. Water pressure was kept at 7.2 MPa. Inner-surface temperatures were collected at eight azimuthal and five axial positions, for each combination of boundary conditions. To better analyze these temperatures and mixing in the vicinity of the wall, scalars estimating the mixing intensity at each measurement position were computed from detrended temperature time series. Fourier and Hilbert–Huang marginal spectra were calculated for the time series giving rise to the highest values of a mixing estimator of choice. The relationship between temperature and velocity was explored by examining the results of an LES simulation using the same boundary conditions as in one of the experimental cases.
