A Single-tube COndensation exPeriment (SCOP) was performed at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) to simulate the condensation phenomena of Passive Auxiliary Feedwater System (PAFS), which is introduced in Advanced Power Reactor Plus. SCOP tests were conducted for two pipes of different diameters [22.6 and 44.8 mm inside diameter] with 8.2 m length and 2.5-4 degrees of the inclined angles of the upper and lower section of each tube. The experiment were performed at 1.5-6.5 MPa of steam pressure and 0.12-0.45 kg/s of steam flow. Based on the Kim and No correlation (KAIST, 2000), we developed a new turbulent-condensation correlation for the turbulent region of the liquid film in the inclined tube. We introduced the factors to account for the different inclined angle effect, different diameter effect. The Nusselt correlation is adopted for condensation near the tube inlet where the laminar region of the liquid film is dominant due to the small amount of condensed water. The present correlation was compared with the Shah and RELAP5 condensation model using the SCOP data. The root mean square errors of the present correlation, Shah model, and RELAP5 model are 17.41%, 57.88%, and 43.07%, respectively: the present correlation can predict well the condensation characteristics in comparison with other correlations in PAFS
