A calculation model for a tube-sheet under thermal shock loading with the finite element code ANSYS is established in this paper. A three-dimensional finite element model is established to simulate thermal shock process in order to obtain temperature and stress distributions of the structure. The duration time of the thermal shock is taken as about ten seconds and thermal cycling numbers are more than 1000 times for the whole service life of the structure. In order to capture accurate temperature and stress profile of this structure, thermo-mechanical coupling approach and transient thermal analysis is used. Temperature and stress distribution are obtained under the given thermal boundary conditions at different time points and it is also easy to get the stress amplitude of the other points in this structure between any two time points. According to the numerical results, the stress induced by thermal shock changes with time and its magnitude and amplitude cannot be ignored. Strength and fatigue evaluations are also performed according to ASME VIII-2 to ensure its safety.
