the basis for a fracture mechanics assessment of nuclear graphite

Investigation on failure assessment method for nuclear

2020/1/1It is necessary to establish a failure assessment method used for nuclear graphite components in MSR. A modified assessment approach based on ASME BPVC-III-5_2017 is presented. The new approach takes a new parameter, KIC, into account and abandons the parameter, grain size, which is unrealistic for super fine-grained graphite as the computation is enormous if we use

BS 7910, the UK procedure for the assessment of flaws in metallic structures, was first published almost 30 years ago in the form of a fracture/fatigue assessment procedure, PD6493. It provided the basis for analyzing fabrication flaws and the need for repair in a

Development of a Plastic Fracture Methodology for

A number of candidate fracture criteria were assembled and investigated to determine the proper basis for plastic fracture mechanics assessments. The results demonstrate that many different fracture criteria can be used as the basis of a resistance curve approach to predicting stable crack growth and fracture instability.

Application of Probabilistic Structural Integrity: Methods

Following a PhD in fatigue and fracture mechanics, Mark developed his research interests in the micro-mechanical failure behaviour of cast Al systems, Ni-based alloys and latterly, nuclear graphite. Joining Frazer-Nash Consultancy in 2007, he continued to

The Basis for a Fracture Mechanics Assessment of Nuclear Graphite

To perform fracture mechanics assessments of nuclear graphite the following assumptions are made: Graphite behaves in a linear elastic manner, this is reasonable true for fine grained graphites, but is not the case for coarse grained graphites, where significant process

A fracture criterion for nuclear graphite

1982/10/1Measurements of tensile and flexural strength of a nuclear graphite using small bar specimens are reported. A theoretical model of failure is described in which critical defects are assumed to be associated with cleaved large coke particles. It is further assumed that these subcritical cracks can only extend by the cleavage of small particles which surround them. The size of the critical flaws

Applications of Probabilistic Fracture Mechanics for

Fitness for service of pressure tubes is demonstrated on an ongoing basis using several methodologies fundamentally based on fracture mechanics. The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) closely monitors industry fitness-for-service programs, and performs detailed reviews of industry fitness-for-service evaluations for inspected pressure tubes and reactor core assessments.

Improvements on Evaluation Functions of a Probabilistic

Improvement of Probabilistic Fracture Mechanics

Probabilistic fracture mechanics (PFM) analysis is expected to be a rational method for structural integrity assessment because it can consider the uncertainties of various influence factors and evaluate the quantitative values such as failure probability of a cracked

Toughness Levels for Steels and the Need for PWHT

Another approach is, with the agreement of all interested parties,to carry out a fracture mechanics assessment on a case by case basis. As noted in Part 1 of this article, with this approach, Leggatt at al [41] showed that, in some of the examples that they considered, PWHT was not necessary.

2021/4/21This paper reports the physical basis of, and assumptions behind, a fracture model for nuclear graphites. Microstructurally related inputs, such as filler particle size, filler particle fracture toughness (K{sub Ic}), density, pore size distribution, number of pores and specimen geometry (size and volume), are utilized in the model.

Probabilistic Distribution of Tensile Strength of Nuclear

The mesoscopic-structure related strength of graphite was investigated by using the microstructure-based fracture model. The model can treat mesoscopic grain and pore structures with the fracture mechanics as well as the statistical approach. In this study the model was applied to the prediction of tensile strength of the nuclear grade H-451 graphite. Input
