Two kinds of seal joint thickness of control rod drive mechanism seal house were analyzed on stress and fatigue by using finite element method, and it provides analytical basis for equipment optimization, design manufacturing and problem handing. In the fatigue computing, all the transients were grouped into several groups, so as to separate the transients not at the same stage obviously. Meanwhile, the transients can be respectively combined in every group to reduce the redundant conservatism of computation. The elastoplastic strain correction factor was modified by analyzing thermal and mechanical load separately referring the rules of RCC-M 2002.By comparing the stress of two thickness joints, the results are found that the fatigue results of the thinner thickness are safer, but this is contrary to the rule of other results. The fatigue usage factor can be reduced by using modified elastoplastic strain correction factor when the amplify of the primary and secondary stress is large produced by both thermal load and mechanical load.
