Calculation of Stress Intensity Factors for Cracks Under Thermal Shock Transients


An approximate method for the calculation of stress intensity factors of cracks under cladding from stress distributions in the uncracked wall is described. The calculation procedure is calibrated using finite element results for several cases and verified on finite element results for other cases.
