Thermal fatigue experiment of screw cooling tube under one-sided heating condition

Ezato, Koichiro; Suzuki, Satoshi; Sato, Kazuyoshi; Akiba, Masato

This paper presents thermal fatigue experiments of a cooling tube with a helical triangular fin on its inner cooled surface, namely a ${it screw tube}$. The screw thread is directly shaped in a CuCrZr heat sink bar as a cooling channel. Slits with the width of 1.5 mm are machined at the heated side of the heat sink. The thermal fatigue experiments are carried out at 20 and 30 $$rm MW/m^2$$ by using an electron beam irradiation facility in JAERI. Water leakages from fatigue cracks, which locate at the slit of the heat sink, occurred at around 4500th and 1400th cycles at 20 and 30 $$rm MW/m^2$$, respectively. These results show good agreement with lifetime predictions using Manson-Coffin's law based on finite element analyses. Fractographic observations reveal that the fatigue cracks start from the outer heated surface at the slit region of the cooling channel and propagate toward its inner surface.
