Abstract

ABSTRACT Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) wall is an important component in the Nuclear Power Plant (NPP). During reactor operation, RPV is subjected to high temperature, pressure, and neutron exposure. This condition could lead to RPV structure failure. In order to assure the integrity of RPV during the reactor lifetime, it is mandatory to perform a structural integrity assessment of RPV by evaluating postulated crack in RPV. In the previous study, the crack has evaluated in 2-D. However, 3-D analysis of semi-elliptic crack shape in the surface of the thick plate for RPV wall using SA 508 Steel is yet to be analyzed. The objective of this study is to analyze and modeling the evaluation in variation crack ratio with some load stress in 3-D. The Stress Intensity Factor (SIF) and J-integral are used as crack parameter. The J-Integral were calculated using MSC MARC MENTAT based on Finite Element Method (FEM) for obtaining the SIF value. The inputs are a crack ratio, load stress, material property, and geometry. The modeling of SIF value and goodness of fit are using MINITAB. The fracture condition could be predicted in comparison to the SIF value and fracture toughness. For the load stress 70 MPa and 80 MPa, with a crack ratio 0.25, 0.33 and 0.5, the material on RPV wall will in fracture condition.
