Pressure drop calculation and temperature profiles associated with fuel and sheath are important aspects of a nuclear reactor design. The main objective of this paper is to determine the pressure drop in a fuel channel of a SuperCritical Water-cooled Reactor (SCWR) and to calculate the temperature profile of the sheath and the fuel bundles. One-dimensional steady-state thermal-hydraulic analysis was conducted. In this study, the pressure drops due to friction, acceleration, local losses, and gravity were calculated at supercritical conditions.
