R&D to enable a practical fast breeder reactor plant is proceeding in Japan, which is called "FaCT" (Fast reactor Cycle Technology development). One of the key issues of R&D is to realize a reasonably compact reactor vessel by eliminating the wall protection equipment which is installed inside the vessel in order to reduce thermal loading in the conventional design. Most important concern is the amount of the inelastic strain of the vessel accumulated around the liquid sodium surface which moves upward and downward cyclically with start-up and shut-down. The aim of this study is to develop rational constitutive models that enable prediction of this kind of complex inelastic behaviors precisely and to prepare the design guide based on inelastic analysis. We developed a high accuracy plasticity model and a simplified plasticity model and valuated them by organized experiments.
