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.
Development of Small-Volume Mechanical Testing—Initial Application to Proton-Irradiated Stainless Steel
In this study, researchers developed and deployed mechanical tests to investigate degradation and failure in proton-irradiated stainless steel in light water nuclear reactor components.
