A complete stress analysis is presented of the primary piping system of the N.S. Savannah, with focus on a flexibility analysis, a dead load and shock analysis, and a vibration analysis and related drawings. Major sections deal with piping configurations, design considerations, and fabrication. Most of the data are provided in the appendices, which include diagrams wherever necessary. The pipe lines considered in the report are the discharge line, the inlet line, and the pressurizer line. Individual design considerations for each analysis are listed for that analysis, but generally each analysis considers the entire piping from the heat exchanger to the reactor or the pressurizer. The piping was manufactured from two sources of supply and in two separate methods, one for the straight lengths and another for the elbows. The piping flexibility conforms to all of the requirements of the ASME-American Standard piping code with allowable stresses adjusted to USCG Regulations.
