ABSTRACT
The three-dimensional elastoplastic stress-strain state of the cracked welded joint between the "hot" header and the shell of PGV-1000M steam generator is numerically analyzed. The crack is located on the inside surface of the connector pipe, near the fillet. The effect of the loading history on the crack-tip stress-intensity factor is assessed.

    In cold extrusion of steel tools make direct contact with the metal to be extruded. Those tools are exposed to high contact stresses which, in certain cases, may be limiting factors in applying this technology.

    In this paper, the modeling of the elastoplastic behavior for tantalum is investigated for a large range of thermomechanical loading. In particular, the need for saturation stress considerations is shown in order to apply models in the domain of high strains. Therefore, the validation of the...
