Our research area focuses on behaviour of fluid under supercritical condition, especially carbon di-oxide which has huge application potential in the field of engineering like mini/micro heat/sink for electronic components cooling, natural circulation loop in geothermal, solar heater system and nuclear reactor core cooling. Experimental facility for natural circulation loop and macro, mini and micro channels is focussed to envisage FiHTD phenomenon and thermalhydraulic behaviour, respectively. Thermal-hydraulic behaviour is investigated for two-phase natural circulation under both sub-critical and supercritical condition and for macro, mini and micro channel system using ANSYS Fluent software package. To study the instability characteristics of the boiling and supercritical natural circulation system, the 1-D system code RELAP5/Mod3 and python platform is under development
