Stress Analysis for Reactor Coolant Pump Nozzle of Nuclear Reactor Pressure Vessel
Abstract: Integrated reactor structural design makes the pressure vessel itself and loads more complicated, so stress concentration makes strength failure easier at reactor coolant pump nozzle. The general purpose finite element program ANSYS/ WORKBENCH was used for 3D stress and fatigue analysis and the results of the evaluation are based on RCC-M criteria. The integrated reactor structural design is evaluated to demonstrate with applicable criteria and ANSYS/WORK- BENCH has better operability than ANSYS APDL on stress analysis of reactor pressure vessel.
