DEADWEIGHT AND SHOCK ANALYSES OF NS SAVANNAH PRIMARY COOLANT PIPING

Deadweight and shock analyses of primary coolant piping on the N.S. Savannah indicate that the combined shock, deadweight, and pressure stresses are within allowable limits. A statutory shock analysis represented dynamic loading conditions for this piping system and the specified conditions of pitching, heaving, and rolling. The exact configuration of both the heat exchanger inlet and pump discharge lines, and the weight of the primary coolant pumps was accounted for in computations performed on the IBM 704 digital computer. Three computer runs determined longitudinal bending stresses due to deadweight, fore and aft shock, and athwartships shock. Stresses and support reactions of the deadweight run were multiplied by 0.3 to determine corresponding vertical shock condition results.
