Abstract

Cladding stainless steel layer on the inner surface of ferrite pressure vessel is a common method to improve the corrosion resistance and save the economic cost. However, the movement of heat source and temperature gradient in the process of cladded welding will lead to the anisotropy of cladded layer material. When measuring the residual stress of pressure vessel steel plate with stainless steel cladded layers (SSCL) by contour method, it is necessary to know the elastic mechanical properties of stainless steel cladded layers accurately. The assumption of transversely isotropy (TI) was employed, and the relationship between the material compliance matrix and the elastic modulus of transversely isotropic material was utilized. Based on the elastic modulus of each cladded layer and the whole steel plate from the longitudinal direction (0°) until the transverse direction (90°) measured by the experiment, the independent constants S11, S13, S33 and S44 in the compliance matrix of each cladded layer and the whole steel plate were obtained by regression analysis method. Furthermore, by using the relationship between the independent constants of the stiffness matrix of the transversely isotropic material and the single crystal material, the independent constant S12 in the compliance matrix of each stainless steel cladded layer and the whole steel plate were obtained. And then the independent constants of the stiffness matrix of each cladded layer and the whole steel plate were acquired. Hence, a method for calculating the anisotropic elastic constants of the stainless steel cladded layer and the whole steel plate was proposed. The results will provide material data support for measuring residual stress of pressure vessel steel plate with stainless steel cladded layers by contour method.
