STEADY-STATE PRESSURE AND THERMAL STRESSES IN THE HRT PRESSURE VESSEL

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The methods used to calculate the steady-state pressure and thermal stresses in the spherical portion or the HRT pressure vessel are presented, The stresses reported here were calculated using the methods considered most applicable st the present time. These methods yield stresses significantly greater than originally reported for the HRT because the calculated total heat generation rate in the vessel wall is greater, and its distribution is different. A comparison of tworegion (DP reflector) and single-region operation is made, showing very little difference between them insofar ss stresses are concerned. A limited amount of experimental heat balance data for the ... continued below

Primarily on the bases of this comparison recommendations are made concerning further procurement of experimental data. (auth)
