Abstract: In this paper, the inelastic analysis procedures recommended to use in the advanced elevated temperature structural design guide under development in Japan for the improved design of future fast breeder reactors were validated through the structural model tests and the evaluation of the experimental results by the inelastic analyses. First, a thermal fatigue test of a 316FR hollow cylinder with two longitudinal weldments was conducted under the condition of combined constant axial load and cyclic movement of …
