Abstract

This paper compares engineering J estimates for Spent Fuel Canisters (SFCs) under combined mechanical and welding residual stress (WRS) with finite element (FE) results. Engineering J estimates are based on reference stress method provided in the R6 procedure considering interaction between primary and secondary stresses using the V-factor. It is found that residual stress should be considered in fracture assessment and the R6 estimates are reasonably conservative compared to FE analysis results.
