The tubes for the receiver of a solar power plant are designed taking into account thermal and mechanical loads. The receiver transfers 60 MW of heat to the working medium of a closed cycle gas turbine, the medium being air. It is shown how the stress pattern in the tubes are influenced by the distribution of the locally absorbed heat flux, assuming linearly elastic deformation of the tube material. Criteria for the influence of the partially plastic behavior of the tubes are discussed for different distributions of the intensity of the absorbed heat flux.
