NS SAVANNAH FUEL DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM STRESS ANALYSIS OF THE FUEL RODS USED IN THE NS SAVANNAH CORE 2
In GEAP 3339, investigation is made of the bending, thermal, and pressure stresses in the N.S. Savannah Core 2 stainless steel fuel cladding operating at maximum overpower conditions. The pressures and thermal gradients utilized to compute stresses in the clad have been up-dated. Utilizing the up-dated values of thermal gradients and pressures, this report presents new clad stresses based on formulation presented in GEAP 3339.
