Description: Pressure vessels are designed to contain pressure and withstand the operating mechanical and thermal transients for a specified design life. In addition they are designed to safety to leak before break (LBB). LBB describes the situation in which a leak occurs before a complete double-ended break of a component. Ductile and tough materials are widely used in nuclear pressure vessels, because of their high resistance to catastrophic rupture. The design process involves fatigue analysis to demonstrate that there is insignificant crack growth a postulated surface crack during the entire design life. However in terms of LBB the significant parameter is the elastic-plastic fracture toughness, and the material strength. However based on assessment based on linear elastic fracture mechanics, the candidate materials are carbon steels, low alloy steels and stainless steels, which interestingly are the materials that are used for pressure vessels. In terms of the fatigue crack initiation, the appropriate parameters are the threshold stress intensity factor range and the endurance limit and the material selection is based on these parameters.
