Analysis on Fluid-Structure Interaction Dynamic Characteristics of Steam Generator Heat Exchanger Tubes
The fluid-structure interaction (FSI) dynamic characteristics of steam generator tubes counting for much with safety of an operating nuclear power plants are investigated by analytical methods based on dynamics mechanics and FSI theories. By using the parametric design language APDL of finite element program ANSYS, intelligently dividing model, setting up material and geometric parameters, the models of tubes with internal and external fluid, the different factors influencing on fluid-structure interaction dynamic characteristics of steam generator tubes are investigated by numerical method.
