For steam generator with straight double-walled heat transfer tube that used in sodium cooled Faster Breeder Reactor, flow instability is one of the most important issues need researching. As the first step of the research, thermal hydraulics experiments with water were performed under high pressure condition in JAEA with using a circular tube with a similar inner diameter as that in the designed SG. Pressure drop, heat transfer coefficients and void fraction data were derived. This paper summarizes the pressure drop characteristics under 15 MPa. Six models for the prediction of two-phase multiplier were evaluated. The results showed the Chisholm correlation and homogeneous model gave best predictions. Note that in the homogeneous model verification, the homogeneous model was only used in the friction loss calculation. In the calculation of void fraction, which is necessary for static head, drift flux model, instead of homogeneous model, was used.
