Natural Circulation Loop with Heat Exchanger Boundary Conditions

The basic natural circulation loop case is modeled with heat source and sink. The high and low temperatures for the fluid are expressed in terms of the source and sink temperatures and the characteristics of the heat exchangers. The transient and steady state model equations are developed, the steady state solution presented, the model equations are given in dimensionless form, and the linearized versions of the equations developed.

Additional work is required to finish analyses of the stability of the system.
