Pressure measurement, laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV) and flow visualization were carried out using the 1/10-scale model of a hot leg piping installed in a Japanese sodium-cooled fast breeder reactor. LDV measurement with Reynolds number of 50000 showed the following results: (1) A flow separation was confirmed in the region between 45 degrees from the elbow inlet and 0.3 times of pipe diameter downstream of the elbow. (2) There appeared two kinds of fluctuations in the present study. In the case of Reynolds number of 320000, it was found that the height of the flow separation downstream of the elbow became smaller, since the inertia of the flow became superior to the inverse pressure gradient.
