Topic : Effects on Nuclear Containment Wall under Different Aircrafts Crash

Authors:A. Rawsan || P. R. Maiti

Abstract:The safety concern of nuclear structure has paramount importance at present time. Nuclear energy presently contributes more than 17% of global energy demand. In this study, safety analysis of 1.2m thick outer containment of a typical Nuclear Power Plant has been carried out using ABAQUS/Explicit finite element code. A real nuclear containment BWR Mark III has been considered in the present study. The height and diameter of the containment wall are 46m and 42m respectively. The effects of impact on nuclear containment wall due to different aircrafts crash have been studied. The analysis has been performed for Boeing 747-400, Boeing 767-400, Airbus A-320, Boeing 707-320 and Phantom F4. The behavior of concrete and reinforcement has been incorporated using Concrete Damaged Plasticity model and Johnson Cook elastic-viscoplastic model respectively. The most critical location was observed the mid-height of the containment wall. It was also observed that Boeing 747-400 is more destructive than others aircrafts..

Keywords: Impact, Aircraft crash, Nuclear containment, Damaged plasticity model, Johnson Cook model.
