Finite Element Analysis of Air Cooler Used in Nuclear Power Station
According to the characteristics of cooler, the finite element model of air cooler is established using ANSYS f software. The force and moment are acted on nozzles using MPC184 element. The first natural frequency is given. Then the stresses of cooler under normal operating load case and under accidental load case are calculated respectively. The stresses of nozzles and foot were checked according to RCC-M specification and meet the requirements.
