A rational analysis technique to evaluate structural integrity of primary welds in free-standing structures in accordance with the ASME Code is presented. This paper is intended to fill the void in the ASME Code rules for analyzing welds under “faulted” (level D) conditions in nonlinear free-standing structural components used in safety-related applications in nuclear power plants.
