Abstract:

A cascade arrangement of pressure vessels is suggested for nuclear power reactor design. The stress analysis and a procedure for the minimum weight design of cascade spherical shells are presented. A numerical example of two stage spherical shells is given to demonstrate the procedures developed as well as the need of such pressure vessels in nuclear power reactor design. Author
