Abstract:

This report contains the plane strain derivation of a set of non-dimensional equations for the quasi-static, thermal stress field in a long, unrestrained, isotropic, homogeneous, solid cylinder whose lateral surface is subjected to heating by a nuclear thermal pulse. Included are the results of a parametric analysis of the stress field as a function of the rise time of the thermal pulse and the total energy of the pulse. Author
