Design of a test equipment : for analyzing irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis was conducted at Uppsala University during the spring semester 2016. The

thesis describes the development of a test equipment in purpose of analyzing how

stainless steel is affected by irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking.

The purpose was to develop and design a test equipment in the software SolidWorks

and then perform simulations and calculations to make sure that the design fullfills

the specification of requirements. These simulations have been performed in the

software COMSOL Multiphysics.

In the beginning of the paper the theory about irradiation assisted stress corrosion

cracking is described, and how this can be associated with the lifetime of a nuclear

power plant. Pre-studies were done which included solid mechanics, material

knowledge and hydrochemistry. After the preparatory work the concept

development started. This was divided into five different concepts with continiuos

improvements. During this process, progress meetings were planned to evaluate the

concepts. Prior to every meeting with the supervisor and the subject reader one

concept was compiled. The design was in the end optimized by a simplified design to

make it easier to assemble and to minimize the consumption of material.

The result shows that the final design fulfills the technical requirements. The

simulations performed show that the design has a good safety margin which is

required to make sure that the design can withstand transients and small defects in

the materials.
