BWRVIP-325: Boiling Water Reactor (BWR) Vessel and Internals Project—BWR Reactor Vessel Instrument Penetration Handbook
Instrument penetrations in a nuclear plant’s reactor pressure vessel are susceptible to a type of degradation called stress corrosion cracking. This handbook supports actions to address this concern, including assessment of nondestructive examination and repair options and related engineering analyses.
Boiling Water Reactor Vessel and Internals Project, On-Line Noble Metal Chemical Application Generic Technical Safety Evaluation
The On-Line Noble Metal Chemical Application helps mitigate stress corrosion cracking in boiling water nuclear reactors by injecting a platinum compound into feedwater piping during normal operations. This study examines the safety of this GE-developed technology under plant operating conditions.
