Thermoelastic stress in concentrating solar receiver tubes: A retrospect on stress analysis methodology, and comparison of salt and sodium

Logie, William; Pye, John; Coventry, Joseph


Temperature distribution in nonaxisymmetrically concentrating solar thermal receivers tubes is calculated for the steady-state solution with a Gauss-Seidel iteration in cylindrical coordinates. The classical plane-biharmonic thermoelastic approach to nonaxisymmetrically heated tube stress is applied. Calculation of the dominant axial thermal stress component is included. Validation is obtained with the linear-elastic thermal stress OpenFOAM® solver. Thermoelastic stress in stainless steel 316...[Show more]
