In this study, the flow structures in a 3-dimentionally connected dual elbow, which simulates a part of the cold leg, are visualized by PIV measurement, and it is discussed on the detailed flow transition from the 1st elbow to the 2nd elbow and the generation of unsteady flow such as a separation that influences flow-induced vibration. Experimental apparatus has a 1/15 scale test section of actual design whose inner diameter and curvature radius ratio are 56mm and 1.0, respectively. For visualization without any image distortion, matched refractive-index PIV measurement is carried out using NaI solution as the working fluid. The Reynolds number is 50,000, and the inlet flow condition to the test section is a fully developed turbulent flow. It is confirmed that it generates a separation along the inner wall of the 1st elbow and one large swirling flow in the 2nd elbow. Furthermore, unsteady flow formed in and/or behind the separation region is transported downstream and flows into the center area of the 2nd elbow.
