Limit state design was newly developed in order to apply the margin exchange which is one of the innovative concepts of the System Based Code (SBC). It was shown that limit state design method is applicable to plant design instead of current design criteria. In this report, working example of a reactor vessel of a Fast Reactor subject to thermal load is conducted to demonstrate this concept. As the result allowable stress was increased by changing the acceptance criteria from current design criteria to limit state design criteria.
