Non-linear characteristics of the subcooled water flow boiling CHF versus outlet subcooling for a flow velocity with outlet pressure as a parameter in a horizontal or vertical tube with a twisted tape having flowing subcooled water was clarified using the existing databases expanding quite recently derived the CHF correlations based on two CHF mechanisms for the bare tubes with various inside diameters and length-to-diameter ratios for a flow velocity with outlet pressure as a parameter. The databases were applied measured using, the horizontal tubes with inside diameters of 8 and 12 mm, having length-to-diameter ratios of 6.25 and 4.17 respectively with twisted-tapes having a twist ratio of 2.0, for flow velocities of 7 and 10 m/s, at pressures ranging from 0.2 to 1.1 MPa. The nonlinear characteristics of subcooled water flow boiling CHFs for outlet subcoolings in the tubes having helically coiled 1 mm diameter wires of the coil pitches of 12, 24 and 36 mm, with flowing subcooled water of a flow velocity of 7 m/s at outlet pressures of 0.2, 0.3 and 1.1 MPa were investigated based on the subcooled water flow boiling CHF correlations for bare tubes previously derived. The following results were derived that (1) the non-linear characteristic of CHF versus outlet subcooling, for a horizontal or vertical tube having a twisted tape, divided into three regions for middle, transition, and high outlet subcooling was clarified. The characteristics were similar to that for a identical bare tube, with higher CHF values for middle and high outlet subcooling values respectively, and (2) the enhanced CHF values for middle and high outlet subcooling values being dependent on outlet pressuret and being independent of one respectively, were described by the same CHF correlations derived for a identical bare tube, with higher coefficients of the correlations depending on the tubes with twisted tapes of twist ratios.
