Title: Metals design handbook

Metals design handbook This report gives an approved set of material properties over a range of environmental conditions which are sufficient to design the metallic components in the reactor system and hot duct assembly. Table 1-1 list these metallic components together with the reference design material chosen for each component. Table 1-2 summarizes the structural criteria of each metallic component taken from the component specifications. In all cases, the criteria references the ASME B&PV Code. The ASME-Code includes the material properties of Coded material. The Code does not, however, include environmental effects (such as irradiation, corrosion, or thermal aging), and for some components the material maximum allowable temperature is below that of the design and/or postulated ``safety-related`` accident conditions. Table 1-3 gives the Code limits for the portions of the Code given in Table 1-2. This document includes the effects of the radiation environment, chemical impurity effects (in the primary coolant), and the effects of thermal aging and corrosion on the metallic properties. The design information introduced in this document includes that available from the ASME B&PV Code High-Temperature Code Cases plus material information from General Atomics (GA) and Oak Ridge National Laboratories (ORNL) that is published.
