NS SAVANNAH, STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS OF FUEL CONTAINER ASSEMBLY--FIRST CORE STRESS AND DEFLECTION DUE TO THERMAL GRADIENTS, PRESSURE DROP, AND SHIP MOTIONS
For purposes of determining if there will be any interference with the operation of the control rods and if any adverse effects will be noted upon the structural integrity and life of the core, this structural analysis calculates the maximum possible deflections and stresses in the walls of the fuel containers of the first core. 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 combinations at full power level and to determine their significance concerning the life and operation of the core. The investigation concludes that the present design is adequate.
