The appropriate description of heat-transfer to coolants at supercritical state is limited by the current understanding. Thus, poses one of the main challenges in development of supercritical-fluids applications for the Generation–IV reactors. The objective of the paper is, therefore, to discuss the basis for comparison of relatively recent experimental data on supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) obtained at facilities of the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) and Chalk River Laboratories (CRL) of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL). Based on the available instrumental error, a thorough analysis of experimental errors in wall- and bulk-fluid temperatures, and heat transfer coefficient is conducted. It is shown that rarely published data on instrumental errors tend to underpredict significantly actual experimental errors. A revised heat-transfer correlation for the CRL data is presented. A preliminary heat-transfer correlation for joint CRL and KAERI datasets is developed.
