This paper deals with CFD predictions for flow and heat transfer in supercritical water in a bare tube. Studies were performed using the software FLUENT for upward flows in vertical tubes with heated length of 4 m and an inner diameter of 10 mm at high values of mass flux (G > 1000 kg/m2s). Turbulence models verification data for the given physical conditions are presented. Besides the testing of different turbulence models that are presented in modern catalog of these models is carried out. Namely, the models related to the following three groups: High–Reynolds number k-ε models with wall functions, k-ω models and Low-Reynolds number k-ε models were considered. On the basis of performed studies the best compliance of known experimental data with computer simulation results fits the k-ω SST turbulence model is shown.
