Abstract : The decision was made to intensify the heat transfer from the fuel elements by the use of artificial roughness in order to increase the power. Artificial roughness should be understood to mean the set of elements of the 'boundary layer interrupter' type applied to the heat transfer surface. The use of this effect has not yet been given proper attention. This can be explained by the fact that according to the theory of this effect, advanced by W. Nunner in 1956, it was believed that in the case of nonmetallic heat transfer agents, the degree of intensification of heat exchange ought to be as slight as possible. (Author)
