The structural analyses of the core support plate have been applied to study thermal transfomation behaviors and the differences of the movement by changing analytical model, under anticipated transient without scram (ATWS) conditions of FBR. The analyses have been performed for 1000 MWe class loop type fast breeder reactor using a structural analysis code FINAS. The thermal-hydraulic results, which have been performed to ATWS conditions using a plant system code, were used as the thermal boundary conditions to the calculation. The scope of the analyses included a whole section of reactor vessel and the dead load of core assemblies was also considered. Following results were obtained from these studies. (1)The thermal transformation of a upper core support plate can be evaluated according to the free expansion behavior owing to the temperature change of core support plate itself. (2)The radial restriction due to core subassemblies has much influence on the axial bend of the core support plate. (3)There are some differences to the transformation results between by the whole model and by the one dimensional model during the thermal transient is large. Another analysis will be needed, however, about the reactivity change according to the displacement of the core structure.
