Toward Predictive Modeling and Mitigation of Irradiation Assisted Stress Corrosion Cracking of Austenitic Steels in Light Water Reactor Core Components
Irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking is a form of degradation that can cause component failures in nuclear power plants. This research examines the factors driving this degradation and mitigation techniques.
Establishment of the Capability to Determine Irradiation-Assisted Stress Corrosion Cracking Initiation from Four-Point Bend Tests Conducted in a Boiling Water Reactor Normal Water Chemistry Environment
In this study, researchers developed and tested an experimental bend technique to better understand the mechanisms of irradiation-assisted stress corrosion cracking in austenitic steels in light water reactor core components.
