... experiments where significant simplifications to the geometry and flow conditions were utilized. One of these simplifications is the assumption that all tubes have the same dynamic characteristics. However, in steam generators with U-bend tube configuration, the natural frequencies of tubes are nonuniform due...

...Lelio Luzzi; Valentino Di Marcello Some innovative nuclear power plant proposals consider for the design tubes of considerable thickness subjected to external pressure (e.g., steam generators tubes). The collapse of thick tubes is expected to be dominated by yielding but, because of the decreasing...
