Abstract

An experimental study was performed to evaluate effect of steam leakage on temperature distributions of pipes in nuclear power plants. Heated air was used as thermal fluid and defect of the pipe was simulated by a pin hole. Experimental results indicate that the surface temperature distributions of covers surrounding the pipe are categorized into two patterns due to location of the pin hole. A new method to predict the location of the defect based on these temperature distributions is proposed through this study.
