The main goal of this correlations-based modeling investigation is to undertake a preemptive analysis on expected measurement values (of selected flow variables) that may be realized during the implementation/completion of the ongoing experimental endeavors dealing with non-pulsatile steady operations of the innovative flow boiler. The correlation models do not accurately predict the heat transfer coefficients or pressure drops due to the assumptions lumped into the development of the correlations. At the conclusion of the investigation, a tool was created that provides rough order of magnitude estimates of pressure drop and local heat transfer rates. The approach is also recommended for finding or developing HTC correlations that have better compatibility with experimental results to be obtained for innovative boiler operations—eliminating to the significant differences seen in the predictions between experimental and modeling approaches.
