The use of “simplified” (reference stress) analysis methods is discussed and illustrated for primary load high temperature design. Elastic methods are the basis of the ASME Section III, Subsection NH primary load design procedure. There are practical drawbacks with this current NH approach, particularly for complex geometries and temperature gradients. The paper describes an approach which addresses these difficulties through the use of temperature-dependent elastic, perfectly-plastic analysis. Traditionally difficulties associated with discontinuity stresses, inelastic strain concentrations and multiaxiality are addressed. A procedure is identified to provide insight into how this approach could be implemented. Though preliminary in nature, it is intended to provide a basis for further development and eventual Code adaptation.
