|Abstract:||This paper describes the Weibull stress approach in predicting the cumulative probability of cleavage fracture for an axially embedded crack in the wall of a reactor pressure vessel (RPV) subjected to a thermal-mechanical transient typical for an accidental, pressurized thermal shock (PTS) event. This study demonstrates the need for detailed elastic-plastic analyses in the integrity assessment of RPVs under PTS loadings, and proposes both a simplified approach and a refined approach to assess the probability of fracture for RPVs subjected to such events.|
