Typically, nuclear plant operators apply noble metals to reactor components annually to mitigate cracking. This research examines the feasibility of continuous injection of noble metals.
BWRVIP-310: BWR Vessel and Internals Project, Report and Nuclear Regulatory Commission Correspondence DVD, Version 2016
The documents on this DVD provide guidelines for managing the degradation of reactor pressure vessel internal components in boiling water nuclear reactors. It includes hundreds of EPRI technical reports and related correspondence with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission dating back to 1994.
Materials Reliability Program: Specification Guideline for Primary Water Stress Corrosion Cracking Mitigation by Surface Stress Improvement
Stress corrosion cracking is a type of degradation that can affect components in nuclear plants. Peening (also known as surface stress improvement) is a technology that can help mitigate this degradation by modifying the stress on metal surfaces. These guidelines are intended to help U.S. nuclear utilities prepare technical specifications for peening in three areas: […]
