Title: 30 MEGAWATT HEAT EXCHANGER AND STEAM GENERATOR FOR SODIUM COOLED REACTOR SYSTEM. VOLUME II. CHEMICAL AND STRESS ANALYSIS

Abstract

The chemical engineering analysis and stress analysis for design of the 30-Mw intermediate heat exchanger and steam generator for service with a liquid- sodium heattransfer fluid are presented. The chemical engineering analysis includes the inert-cover-gas system, control of liquid level, and design provisions for system pressure relief. Consideration is given to possible hazards resulting from a steam-to-sodium leak. The stress analysis section covers those thermal transients that would be physically possible with this intermediate heat exchanger and steam generator design. Attention was given to methods of operation that would minimize the magnitude and frequency of thermal shocks. A structural design basis for handling stress analysis of combined mechanical, hydrostatic, and thermal stresses and conditions for using creep and stress-rupture properties is included. (M.C.G.)
