Proposal of the screening method for prevention of the accumulation of the ratcheting strain derived from the movement of the temperature distribution

The prevention of excessive deformation by thermal ratcheting is important in the design of high-temperature components of fast breeder reactors (FBR). This includes evaluation methods for a new type of thermal ratcheting caused by a traveling temperature distribution. Igari et al. proposed a mechanism-based evaluation method to evaluate thermal ratcheting caused by temperature distributions traveling long and short distances. In this paper, we simplify the existing method and propose a screening method to prevent thermal ratcheting strain in the design of practical components. The proposed method consists of two steps to prevent the continuous accumulation of ratcheting strain. To validate the proposed method, we performed a set of elasto-plastic finite element method (FEM) analyses, with the assumption of elastic perfectly plastic material.
