Establishment of numerical estimation method for high cycle thermal fatigue estimation in sodium-cooled fast reactor, 1; Conceptual model development for numerical estimation by using PIRT method

Tanaka, Masaaki

Numerical estimation method for high cycle thermal fatigue on a structure has been developed in JAEA. In development of numerical simulation codes and application of the codes to plant design, implementation of verification and validation (V&V) is indispensable. A procedure called as V2UP (Verification and Validation plus Uncertainty quantification and Prediction) has been made by referring to the existing guidelines on V&V. The PIRT (Phenomena Identification and Ranking Table) method based on the nine-step process used by the USNRC for the next generation nuclear plant development was employed at the first step of the V2UP. Through the first step of the V2UP with PIRT method, the conceptual model for the numerical estimation of high cycle thermal fatigue was successfully constructed.
