AN ANALYSIS OF THE CONTROL ROD NOZZLES ON THE NS SAVANNAH SPARE HEAD
Control rod nozzle analysis takes into account the effect of pressure, temperature, dead loading, and the presence of mounting holes for a magnetic switch in the upper housing. The design condition was examined at 2000 psi pressure, and 650 F isothermal and 140 F ambient temperature. The normal operating condition was examined at 2000 psi pressure and 140 ambient temperature, plus a temperature gradient along the length of the nozzle. The thermal accident condition is a steady state condition with all parts at 2000 psi pressure and 520 F except for a 200 F thermal lag in the bolts.
