Fatigue crack growth for ferritic steel under negative stress ratio

山口 義仁; 長谷川 邦夫; Li, Y.

Journal of Pressure Vessel Technology, 142(4), p.041507_1 - 041507_6, 2020/08

疲労亀裂進展中における亀裂の開閉口は、亀裂進展速度の評価において重要な現象である。ASME Code Section XIのAppendix A-4300は、負の応力比におけるフェライト鋼の疲労亀裂進展速度を算出する式について、負荷の大きさに応じて二つ提示している。一つは、負荷が小さい場合に、亀裂の閉口を考慮する式である。もう一つは、負荷が大きい場合に、亀裂の閉口を考慮しない式である。本研究では、フェライト鋼に対して、負荷の大きさを徐々に変えながら疲労亀裂進展試験を実施し、負荷の大きさが亀裂閉口に及ぼす影響を調査した。その結果、Appendix A-4300における疲労亀裂進展速度算出式を切り替える負荷の大きさと比較して、より小さい負荷で亀裂が閉口することを明らかにした。

Some Japanese nuclear power plants have experienced several large earthquakes beyond the design basis ground motion. In addition, cracks resulting from long-term operation have been detected in piping systems. Therefore, to assess the structure integrity of cracked pipes taking the occurrence of large earthquakes into account, it is very important to establish a crack growth evaluation method for cracked pipes that are subjected to large seismic cyclic response loading. In our previous study, we proposed an evaluation method for crack growth during large earthquakes through experimental study using small specimens and investigation using finite element analyses. In the present study, to confirm applicability of the proposed method, crack growth tests were conducted on both stainless and carbon steel pipe specimens with a circumferential through-wall crack, considering large seismic cyclic response loading with complex wave forms. The predicted crack growth values are in good agreement with the experimental results and the applicability of the proposed method was confirmed.

Alloy 82/182/600, which is used in light-water reactors, is known to be susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking. The depth of some of these cracks may exceed the value of half-length on the surface. Although the stress intensity factor (SIF) for cracks plays an important role in predicting crack propagation and failure, Section XI of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code does not provide SIF solutions for such deep cracks. In this study, closed-form SIF solutions for deep surface cracks in plates are discussed using an influence coefficient approach. The stress distribution at the crack location is represented by a fourth-degree-polynomial equation. Tables for influence coefficients obtained by finite element analysis in the previous studies are used for curve fitting. The closed-form solutions for the influence coefficients were developed at the surface point, the deepest point, and the maximum point of a crack with an aspect ratio a/c ranging from 1.0 to 8.0, where a is the crack depth and c is one-half of the crack length. The maximum point of a crack refers to the location on the crack front where the SIF reaches a maximum value.

In Japan, a probabilistic fracture mechanics (PFM) analysis code PASCAL was developed for structural integrity assessment of reactor pressure vessels (RPVs) considering neutron irradiation embrittlement and pressurized thermal shock (PTS) events. By reflecting the latest knowledge and findings, the evaluation functions are continuously improved and have been incorporated into PASCAL4 which is the most recent version of the PASCAL code. In this paper, the improvements made in PASCAL4 are explained in detail, such as the evaluation model of warm prestressing (WPS) effect, evaluation function of confidence levels for PFM analysis results by considering the epistemic and aleatory uncertainties in probabilistic variables, the recent stress intensity factor (KI) solutions, and improved methods for KI calculations when considering complicated stress distributions. Moreover, using PASCAL4, PFM analysis examples considering these improvements are presented.

確率論的破壊力学(PFM)に基づく構造健全性評価手法は、経年劣化に関連する様々な因子の確率分布を考慮して原子炉圧力容器(RPV)の破損頻度を評価できる合理的な手法である。我々は、中性子照射脆化や加圧熱衝撃事象(PTS)事象を考慮してRPVの破損頻度を評価するPFM解析コードPASCALを開発してきた。また、国内におけるPFMの適用性向上を図るため、破壊力学に関する知識を有する解析者がそれを参照することでPFM解析を行い亀裂貫通頻度を評価できるよう、標準的解析要領を整備した。本要領は、本文、解説及び付属書で構成されており、PFM解析に関する技術的根拠や最新知見が取りまとめられたものになっている。本論では、本要領の概要について述べるとともに、本要領とPTS評価に関する国内データベースに基づき得られた国内モデルRPVに対する破損頻度の評価結果について述べる。

2個の欠陥が近接して存在する場合は、これらの欠陥は1つの欠陥に合体される。この合体評価は多くの国の維持規格に採用されているが、具体的な合体クライテリアは異なっている。一方、2個の周方向欠陥を有するステンレス鋼配管の曲げ試験が行われており、塑性崩壊荷重は求められている。また、解析的な式も導かれている。本研究では、これらの実験と解析結果から得られる塑性崩壊応力を合体クライテリアから導かれる塑性崩壊応力と比較した。その結果、合体クライテリアを用いた塑性崩壊応力は、実験や解析結果と極めて異なることが分かった。

周方向に内外表面亀裂を有する管の塑性崩壊応力は、米国機械学会のボイラーと圧力容器の規格のSection XIのAppendix Cで推定式が記載されている。このAppendix Cの推定式は欠陥形状が同じであれば内外表面亀裂の塑性崩壊応力は同じである。われわれは、管の平均半径を欠陥面と欠陥以外の面の2つの平均半径を考慮し、内外表面亀裂を有する管の塑性崩壊応力を導いた。その結果、外表面欠陥の塑性崩壊応力は、管の厚さが大きく亀裂が深くて長いとき、Appendix Cの推定式は大きく、非安全側になることが分かった。

Subsurface flaws are sometimes found as blowholes near free surfaces of structural components. It can be easily expected that the stress intensity factor at the tip of the subsurface flaw increases with decreasing the ligament distance. Fitness-for-service (FFS) codes provide flaw-to-surface proximity rules which are transformation from subsurface to surface flaw. Although the concept of the proximity rules of the FFS codes are the same, the specific criteria for the rules on transforming subsurface flaws to surface flaws are different amongst FFS codes. This study demonstrates the proximity criteria provided by the FFS codes and indicates that the increment of the stress intensity factors before and after the transformation from subsurface to surface flaws. In addition, it is shown that remaining fatigue lives for pipes with flaws are strongly affected by the location at the transformation from subsurface to surface flaws.

The applicability of miniature compact tension (Mini-C(T)) specimens to fracture toughness evaluation of neutron-irradiated reactor pressure vessel (RPV) steels was investigated. Three types of RPV steels neutron-irradiated to a high-fluence region were prepared and manufactured as Mini-C(T) specimens according to Japan Electric Association Code (JEAC) 4216-2015. Through careful selection of the test temperature by considering previously obtained mechanical properties data, valid fracture toughness, and reference temperature T$$_{o}$$ was obtained with a relatively small number of specimens. Comparing the fracture toughness and T$$_{o}$$ values determined using other larger specimens with those determined using the Mini-C(T) specimens, T$$_{o}$$ values of both unirradiated and irradiated Mini-C(T) specimens were found to be the acceptable margin of error. The scatter of 1T-equivalent fracture toughness values of both unirradiated and irradiated materials obtained using Mini-C(T) specimens did not differ significantly from the values obtained using larger specimens. The correlation between the Charpy 41J transition temperature (T$$_{41J}$$) and the T$$_{o}$$ values agreed very well with that of the data in the literature, regardless of specimen size and fracture toughness of the materials before irradiation. Based on these findings, it was concluded that Mini-C(T) specimens can be applied to fracture toughness evaluation of neutron-irradiated materials without significant specimen size dependence.

The stress intensity factor (SIF) solutions for subsurface flaws near the free surfaces of components, which are known to be important in engineering applications, have not been provided yet. Thus, in this paper, SIF solutions for subsurface flaws near the free surfaces in flat plates were numerically investigated based on finite element analyses. The flaws with aspect ratios a/l = 0.0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4 and 0.5, the normalized ratios a/d = 0.0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8, and d/t = 0.01 and 0.10 were taken into account, where a is the half flaw depth, l is the flaw length, d is the distance from the center of the subsurface flaw to the nearest free surface and t is the wall thickness. Fourth-order polynomial stress distribution in the thickness direction was considered. In addition, the developed SIF solutions were incorporated into a Japanese probabilistic fracture mechanics (PFM) code, and PFM analyses were performed for a Japanese reactor pressure vessel containing a subsurface flaw near the inner surface. The PFM analysis results indicate that the obtained SIF solutions are effective in engineering applications.

Reference curves of fatigue crack growth rates for ferritic steels in air environment are provided by the ASME Code Section XI Appendix A. The fatigue crack growth rates under negative R ratio are given as da/dN vs. K$$_{max}$$. It is generally well known that the growth rates decreases with decreasing R ratios. However, the da/dN as a function of K$$_{max}$$ are the same curves under R = 0, -1 and -2. In addition, the da/dN increases with decreasing R ratio for R$$<$$-2. This paper converts from da/dN vs. K$$_{max}$$ to da/dN vs. $$Delta$$K$$_{I}$$, using crack closure U. It can be seen that the growth rate da/dN vs. $$Delta$$K$$_{I}$$ is better equation than da/dN vs. K$$_{max}$$ from the view point of stress ratio R. Furthermore, extending crack closure U to R = -5, it can be explained that the da/dN decreases with decreasing R ratio in the range of -5 $$<$$ R $$<$$ 0. This tendency is consistent with the experimental data.

The stress intensity factors (SIFs) for pipes containing semi-elliptical cracks with large aspect ratios were calculated by finite element analysis. The cracks were circumferential and axial surface cracks inside the pipes. The parameters of the SIFs are crack aspect ratio, crack depth and the ratio of pipe radius to wall thickness. In comparing SIFs for plates and pipes, it can be clarified that SIFs for both plates and thin pipes with $$_{t}/R_{i}$$ $$<$$ 1/10 are almost the same, and the SIFs for plates are used as a substitute for pipes with $$_{t}/R_{i}$$ $$<$$ 1/10, where $$t$$ is the pipe wall thickness and $$R_{i}$$ is the inner radius of the pipe. This means that it is not necessary to provide SIF solutions for pipes with $$_{t}/R_{i}$$ $$<$$ 1/10, and it is suggested that number of tables for influence coefficients G values for pipes can significantly reduce.

原子力配管系の重要な荷重条件は、内圧,曲げ荷重及びねじり荷重である。しかし、これらの荷重条件を全て考慮した減肉配管の破壊評価手法は確立されていない。われわれはこれまでに有限要素法による極限荷重解析により、これらの多軸荷重条件が負荷された場合の局部減肉を有する配管の破壊評価手法を提案した。本研究では、局部減肉を有する炭素鋼小型配管試験体を対象に内圧による引張荷重,曲げ荷重及びねじり荷重を同時に負荷した破壊試験を実施した。これまでに提案した破壊評価手法により予測した破壊荷重は試験結果とよく一致したことから、提案手法の妥当性が確認できた。

When multiple flaws are detected in structural components, remaining lives of the components are estimated by fatigue flaw growth calculations using combination rules in fitness-for-service (FFS) codes. A lot of FFS codes provide combination rules for multiple flaws, however, these combination rules are significantly different among the various FFS codes. Fatigue flaw growth for two similar adjacent surface flaws in a pipe subjected to cyclic tensile stress were obtained by numerical calculations using these different combination rules. In addition, fatigue lives taking into account interaction effect between the two similar flaws were conducted by extended finite element method (X-FEM). As the calculation results, it is found that the fatigue lives calculated by the X-FEM are close to those by the ASME Code. Finally, it is worth noticing that the combination rule provided by the ASME Code is appropriate for fatigue flaw growth calculations.

The Welded joint strength reduction factors of modified 9Cr-1Mo Steel for the advanced loop-type sodium cooled fast reactor

Modified 9Cr-1Mo steel (ASME Gr.91) is widely used in fossil power plants. In the advanced loop type sodium cooled fast reactor, modified 9Cr-1Mo steel is going to be adopted as a structural material. In welded joints of enhanced creep-strength ferritic steels including modified 9Cr-1Mo steel, creep strength may markedly degrade, especially in the long-term region. This phenomenon is known as Type-IV damage. Therefore, considering strength degradation due to Type-IV damage is necessary. In this study, we propose a creep strength curve and a welded joint strength-reduction factor (WJSRF). The creep strength curve of welded joints was proposed by employing a second-order polynomial equation with LMP using the stress range partitioning method. WJSRF was proposed on the basis of design creep rupture stress intensities. The resulting allowable stress was conservative compared with that prescribed in the ASME code. In addition, the design of the hot-leg pipe in the advanced loop type sodium cooled fast reactor was reviewed considering WJSRF.

日本及び米国の維持規格では、機器の自由表面近傍にある内部欠陥を表面欠陥に置き換える接近性ルールがある。本論文では配管の内表面近傍に存在する内部欠陥を対象にして、従来の規格にある接近性ルールと、著者らが新たに提案した接近性ルールを用いて、疲労亀裂進展による疲労余寿命を求めた。その結果、欠陥の形状や寸法によっては現行規格に含まれている接近性ルールは非保守的となる場合があり、われわれが提案した接近性ルールが有効なものであることが分かった。

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. The first step is to determine whether all points through the wall thickness are in the plastic state. The second step is to determine whether the accumulation of the plastic strain saturates. To validate the proposed method, we performed a set of elastoplastic finite element method (FEM) analyses, with the assumption of elastic perfectly plastic material. Not only did we investigate about the effect of the axial length of the area with full section yield state but also we investigated about effects of spatial distribution of temperature, existence of primary stress, and radius thickness ratio.

316FR stainless steel is a candidate structural material of JSFR. Two types of weld metals are candidates for 316FR welded joints; 316FR weld metal and 16-8-2 weld metal. This study evaluated the need to consider the welded joint strength reduction factors in 316FR welded joints. To this end, the tensile and creep strengths of Type 316FR and Type 16-8-2 weld metals were measured, and the effect of delta-ferrite in weld metals was evaluated in creep-strength tests of 316FR welded joints. In tensile and creep strengths of 316FR joints welded by both metal types, the welded joint strength reduction factors were immaterial. The creep strength of 316FR welded joints was negligibly affected by delta-ferrite levels from 4.1 FN to 7.0 FN. Furthermore, the tensile and creep strengths of 316FR joints welded by two methods (Tungsten Inert Gas Welding and Shielded Metal Arc Welding) were the same.
