Technical support is provided for a fatigue curve that could potentially be incorporated into Section III of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. This fatigue curve conservatively accounts for the effects of light water reactor environments on the fatigue behavior of austenitic stainless steels. This paper presents the data, statistical methods, and basis for the design factors appropriate for Code applications. A discussion of the assumptions and methods used in design curve development is presented.
