Study on dynamic strength evaluation method of mechanical members based on energy balance

Minagawa, Keisuke*; Fujita, Satoshi*; Kitamura, Seiji ; Okamura, Shigeki

This paper describes the dynamic strength evaluation of piping installed in nuclear power plants from a viewpoint of energy balance. In this study, ultimate strength of a simple single degree of freedom model is investigated from a viewpoint of energy balance equation that is one of valid methods for structural calculation. The investigation is implemented by forced vibration experiment. In the experiment, colored random wave having predominant frequency similar to natural frequency of the experimental model is input. Stainless steel and carbon steel are selected as material of experimental model. As a result of the experiment, it is confirmed that input energy for fracture increase with an increase of time for fracture. In other words, more input energy for fracture is needed in case of small input level. Additionally it is confirmed that input energy for fracture depend on the material.
