Abstract

Longitudinal flow in the entrance region of symmetric finite circular rod bundles is solved using the boundary fitted coordinate system. It is found that the flow in the interior channel develops faster than the rest of the flow when the rods are clustered near the central rod, while the flow in the corner channel develops faster when the rods are clustered near the channel wall. The diversion cross flow from the channels also follows the same pattern. When the flow is affected equally by both the central rod and the channel wall, the cross flow from both the interior and corner channels is towards the wall channel.
