NS SAVANNAH STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS OF FUEL CONTAINER ASSEMBLY--SECOND CORE STRESS AND DEFLECTION DUE TO THERMAL GRADIENTS, PRESSURE DROP, AND SHIP MOTIONS
Analyzes the maximum possible deflections and stresses in the walls of the fuel containers of the second core to determine the possibility of any interference with the operations of the control rods and any potential adverse effects on the core's structural integrity and life. The analysis is limited to calculation of the most critical deflections and stresses from the worst set of credible circumstances considering various temperatures, pressures, and ship motions in combination at full power level. Based upon this investigation, the design of the second core is considered adequate.
