Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer of Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Cooling

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

1 Scopus citations


This chapter reviews supercritical fluid properties and fluid mechanics, thermal hydraulic experiments and correlations, and recommended future work relevant for supercritical carbon dioxide heat pump applications. Specific focus is on correlations developed and validated for supercritical carbon dioxide cooling applications, with and without lubricating oil present. The performance of relevant heat transfer correlations are compared, particularly over the range of expected gas cooler temperatures. The chapter concludes with recommendations for carbon dioxide heat pump designers, and for future research work in the area of fluid dynamics and heat transfer of supercritical carbon dioxide cooling.
