Buckling evaluation methods capable of evaluating elasto-plastic buckling under axial compression, bending, and shear loads are required for cylindrical vessels of fast reactors in order to cope with thinning due to the increase in diameter, adoption of new materials, and adoption of seismic isolation design due to the increase in the standard seismic ground motion. Buckling evaluation methods corresponding to the above are being considered in the fast reactor standards of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers. In this study, in order to examine the applicability of the proposed buckling evaluation equation, Monte Carlo simulation was carried out using material properties and initial imperfections, which are the fluctuation factors of buckling strength, as parameters, and the effect of the fluctuation of these factors on buckling load was evaluated. When the buckling load was normalized by the buckling critical value according to the proposed formula using the longitudinal elastic modulus and the design yield stress of JSME S NC2-2013, the 95% lower confidence limit exceeded the threshold of the proposed formula for both the vertical single load condition and the horizontal and vertical combined load condition. The results show that the buckling critical value calculated by using the design yield stress in the proposed equation is more conservative than the 95% lower confidence limit of the actual buckling load affected by the scatter of material properties and others.
