Abstract: A square - edged orifice is a pressure differential device commonly used for flow measurements in EDFs nuclear power plants. The present study presents experimental data obtained on EDF R&D test bench for an orifice plate and computational fluid dynamics ca lculations (CFD) using the k - e turbulence model to predict velocity fields, pressure loss and discharge coefficient around this device . Investigations focus on flow rate through the circular square - edged orifice in a round pipe at a Reynolds number close t o 8.69 E+05 . T wo pipe configurations have been tested : one with 44D upstream straight length and the second with 9.4D upstream straight length
