Online Companion Guide to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes: Criteria and Commentary on Select Aspects of the Boiler & Pressure Vessel Codes

Publisher:
ASME Press
Publication date:
2020

This chapter provides commentary and some practical examples on the materials, design, fabrication, installation, and examination requirements for core support structures (CSS) in pressurized water reactors and boiling water reactors in Section III, Division 1, Subsection NG of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. It begins with background information on the development of Subsection NG and the definition of CSS, internal structures (IS), and threaded structural fasteners (TSF). The chapter then outlines the jurisdictional boundaries between CSS and reactor pressure vessels and the unique service loadings for reactor internals. The chapter details the material requirements in NG-2000; describes...
