Development of limit state design for fast reactor by system based code

Watanabe, Daigo*; Chuman, Yasuharu*; Asayama, Tai; Takaya, Shigeru; Machida, Hideo*; Kamishima, Yoshio*

Proceedings of 2013 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference (PVP 2013) (DVD-ROM), 7 Pages, 2013/07

Limit state design was newly developed in order to apply the margin exchange which is one of the innovative concepts of the System Based Code (SBC). It was shown that limit state design method is applicable to plant design instead of current design criteria. In this report, working example of a reactor vessel of a Fast Reactor subject to thermal load is conducted to demonstrate this concept. As the result allowable stress was increased by changing the acceptance criteria from current design criteria to limit state design criteria.

In this paper, the inelastic analysis procedures for the improved design of future fast breeder reactors were validated through the structural model tests and the evaluation of the experimental results by the inelastic analyses. First, a thermal fatigue test of a 316FR hollow cylinder with two longitudinal weldments was conducted under the condition of combined constant axial load and cyclic movement of axial temperature distribution, which simulated the loading condition near the free surface of coolant sodium in the main vessel of fast breeder reactors (FBRs). Second, the inelastic analyses were carried out in accordance with the recommended procedure by using the measured results of oscillating temperature distribution. Finally, the results of inelastic analyses were compared with the experimental results and it was validated that the recommended practice gave a conservative result for the deformation and a good estimation of strain range for the fatigue life evaluation.

Measurement of thermal ratcheting strain on the structures by the laser speckle method

Watanabe, Daigo*; Chuman, Yasuharu*; Otani, Tomomi*; Shibamoto, Hiroshi; Inoue, Kazuhiko*; Kasahara, Naoto

Proceedings of 2006 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Division Conference (PVP 2006)/International Council on Pressure Vessel Technology (ICPVT-11) (CD-ROM), 7 Pages, 2006/00

Prevention of thermal ratcheting is an important problem for high temperature components of fast breeder reactors that are subjected to cyclic thermal loads. To clarify ratcheting behaviors, structural model tests were planned. Strain measurement is important for understanding the thermal ratcheting phenomenon, however the conventional measurement by strain gauge is difficult at high temperature. Then, Laser speckle strain measurement system using the dual-beam set-up was developed to apply to high temperature structural model tests. This system was applied to the thermal ratcheting tests, which demonstrated the actual operative conditions of reactor vessels. Through comparison with uniaxial test results obtained by extensometers, the laser speckle method was verified. Measured data of structural model tests were utilized to certify the guidelines of inelastic analysis for design, which provide prediction method of strain in components of fast reactor.
