Abstract

Logitudinal flow in the entrance region of asymmetric finite circular rod bundles is solved using the boundary fitted coordinate system. Three types of eccentricities are studied. In all cases it is found that the flow is affected only in the immediate vicinity of the displaced rods. Everywhere else the symmetry of the flow is maintained. For a given type of eccentricity, the fully developed as well as the developing f. Re values decrease as the eccentricity increases.
