Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) is in the process of carrying out a nuclear hydrogen system by considering the indirect cycle gas cooled reactors that produce heat at temperatures in the order of 950 °C. A coaxial double-tube hot gas duct (HGD) is a key component connecting the reactor pressure vessel and the intermediate heat exchanger (IHX) for the nuclear hydrogen system. Recently, a preliminary design analysis for the primary and secondary hot gas ducts of the nuclear hydrogen system was carried out. These preliminary design activities include a preliminary decision on the geometric dimensions, a preliminary strength evaluation and an appropriate material selection. In this study, a preliminary strength evaluation for the HGDs of the nuclear hydrogen system has been undertaken. Preliminary strength evaluation results for the HGDs showed that the geometric dimensions of the proposed HGDs would be acceptable for the design requirements.
