Benchmark Testing of the Finite-Strain Version of the LIFE-III Fast-Reactor-Element Code

Benchmark Testing of the Finite-Strain Version of the LIFE-III Fast-Reactor-Element Code

Date: November 1976
Creator: Shack, W. J.; Jankus, V. Z. & Billone, Michael C.
Description: A collection of benchmark problems is used to test the finite-strain formulation of the LIFE-III fast-reactor fuel-element code. Analytical solutions for thick-wall cylinders loaded by internal and external pressure, valid for arbitrarily large strains, are presented for a linear viscous material. Similar problems are formulated for a nonlinear material, and numerical solutions are obtained using the Runge-Kutta method for the integration of an ordinary differential equation. These solutions are then compared with the corresponding solutions obtained using the LIFE-III code. With a proper choice of the number of spatial regions and time steps, good agreement is obtained between the two sets of solutions. The results indicate that the structural-analysis portion of the revised LIFE-III is valid for large strains.

Biaxial Creep Behavior of Ribbed GCFR Cladding at 650 degrees C in Nominally Pure Helium (99. 99%)

Biaxial Creep Behavior of Ribbed GCFR Cladding at 650 degrees C in Nominally Pure Helium (99. 99%)

Date: November 1977
Creator: Yaggee, F. L.; Purohit, A.; Grajek, W. J. & Poeppel, R. B.
Description: Biaxial creep-rupture tests were conducted on 12 prototypic GCFR fuel-cladding specimens at 650 deg C and a nominal hoop stress of 241.3 MPa. All test specimens were fabricated from 20% cold-worked Type 316 stainless steel tubes that were ribbed on the outer surface by mechanical grinding or electro-chemical etching. Test variables included specimen length and the presence or absence of weld-reinforcing end collars.

Biaxial Creep-Fatigue Behavior of Type 316H Stainless Steel Tube

Biaxial Creep-Fatigue Behavior of Type 316H Stainless Steel Tube

Date: April 1979
Creator: Majumdar, S.
Description: Biaxial creep-fatigue test data for Type 316 stainless steel tubes at 1100*Y are presented. The specimens were subjected to constant internal pressure and fluctuating axial strain with and without hold times in tension as well as compress ion. The results show that internal pressure significantly affects diametral ratchetting and axial stress range. Axial tensile hold is found to he more damaging than axial compressive hold even cinder a biaxial state of stress.

Bibliography for Transportation Energy Conservation

Bibliography for Transportation Energy Conservation

Date: May 1976
Creator: Northwestern University (Evanston, Ill.). Transportation Center. Library.
Description: A listing is given of 578 reports, books, articles, and conference papers on transportation and energy. Coverage is primarily on U. S. developments and research from 1970 to 1975. Following a section of citations of general works on energy, the bibliography contains two main parts: ''Energy for Transportation'' and ''Transportation of Energy.'' Within each of these topics the arrangement is multimodal (at the urban, regional, national, or international level), then by mode. Selected information sources are listed in the last part. Within each section, entries are arranged alphabetically by author or, lacking an author, by title. References were drawn from the Transportation Center Library collection and other libraries in the Northwestern University system. An earlier bibliography, Transportation and Energy, compiled by the Transportation Center Library in March 1974, forms the basis for the arrangement and provides coverage from 1970 to 1973.

Bilinear Cyclic Stress-Strain Analysis for Incoloy 800

Bilinear Cyclic Stress-Strain Analysis for Incoloy 800

Date: 1977?
Creator: Maiya, P. S.
Description: This report describes the bilinear stress-strain analysis under cyclic loading conditions for the alloy Incoloy 800. Although the method for determining the bilinear stress-strain parameters is based on a procedure proposed in the RDT Standard F9-1 for inelastic analysis of Fast Flux Test Facility (FFTF) components, the accuracy and consistency of results have been improved by an analytical technique, which also resulted in certain simplifications. The bilinear stress-strain parameters of solution-annealed Incoloy 800 (Heat HH7058A) under cyclic loading conditions at a strain rate of 8.6 x 10⁻⁵ s⁻¹, total strain range of 0.2 to 0.8 percent, and temperatures of room temperature to 593 degrees C (1100 degrees F) have been determined. The dependence of bilinear parameters on temperature and strain is discussed. The cyclic-hardening characteristics based on correlation of yield parameter k with accumulated plastic strain are also presented.

Calculations of Stresses in GCFR Cladding under Normal Operating Conditions

Calculations of Stresses in GCFR Cladding under Normal Operating Conditions

Date: November 1979
Creator: Liu, Yung Y.; Hsieh, T. C. & Billone, Michael C.
Description: A modified version of the LIFE-III code, LIFE-GCFR, and classical stress-analysis techniques have been used to calculate the stresses in the GCFR cladding under normal reactor operating conditions. Several types of loadings on the cladding that occur during normal operation have been considered. These include fuel-cladding mechanical interaction, thermal stresses induced by radial and axial temperature gradients, and swelling gradient-induced stresses. The combined and individual effects of these loadings, as well as the effect of creep on cladding stresses, have been assessed.
