Abstract

The European Fast Reactor (EFR) collaboration with the EFR Associates Design and Construction Rules Committee, and the R&D Agreement (AGT 9B) produced significant developments in design-by-analysis procedures for high temperature plant. Several of these developments have the potential for making significant improvements to LWR design codes. In particular, the developments on shakedown, tubeplates, buckling, interaction diagrams, and piping elastic follow-up, are of sufficient benefit to suggest the recommendation of trial applications on typical LWR components. Recommendations on the topics of weldment design-by-analysis methods and strain range enhancement are also currently being considered. Developments on constitutive equations, Level D criteria, and the Zarka method may be used as guidance to confirm or supplement existing LWR procedures.
