Alternative stress evaluation criteria suitable for Finite Element Analysis (FEA) proposed by Okamoto et al. [1] have been studied by the Committee on Three Dimensional Finite Element Stress Evaluation (C-TDF) in Japan. Thermal stress ratchet criteria in plastic FEA are now under consideration. Two criteria are proposed: evaluating variations in plastic strain increments and evaluating variations in the elastic core region. To verify the validity of these criteria, calculations were performed for several typical models in C-TDF [2]. This paper shows calculations and evaluation results of a Flat Head Vessel for shakedown. To study shakedown criteria for gross structural discontinuity, a flat head vessel is surveyed. The flat head vessel consists of a stiff flat head and a shell and is subjected internal pressure and thermal cycle. The elastic shakedown area and the plastic area are compared and plastic strain increments are surveyed. A shakedown evaluation method based on distribution of elastic-plastic strain range is proposed.
