Explosive Fragmentation of Molten Salt in Subcooled Water
- 87 Downloads
The present study examines the molten NaCl explosive fragmentation in subcooled distilled water. It is noted that the explosion occurred in all experiments performed. However, such a good reproducibility was not observed at a two-phase cooling of the molten metal. This fact can be explained by the lower value of the liquid salt viscosity in comparison with liquid metals viscosity. In addition, a description of explosion propagation in a group of melt drops is given.
