Pressure corrosion cracking is an important challenge in gentle water nuclear reactors, no matter if pressurised water reactors (PWRs) or boiling water reactors (BWRs). The nuclear should be capable of expect the carrier lifetime of those energy vegetation and enhance acceptable upkeep and service practices to make sure secure long-term operation. this crucial publication sums up key fresh examine on corrosion in mild water reactors and its functional applications.
The publication is split into 4 components. It starts with an summary of fabrics degradation as a result of tension corrosion, corrosion power tracking and passivation. half summarises study on susceptibility of fabrics to emphasize corrosion cracking and the methods it may be initiated. The 3rd a part of the booklet considers pressure corrosion crack propagation techniques when the ultimate half comprises sensible case reviews of corrosion particularly vegetation. The ebook reports corrosion in a number of fabrics comparable to low alloy steels, stainless steels and nickel-based alloys.
With its distinct editor and group of individuals, Corrosion concerns in mild water reactors is a regular paintings for the nuclear industry.
- Summarises key contemporary examine on corrosion in gentle water reactors
- Includes functional case studies

Nevertheless, practical experience shows that de-oxygenated, hydrogenated PWR primary water does not cause IGSCC in such sensitized materials, in contrast to BWR experience with oxygenated NWC water. 2 Core internals Another major use of Type 304 and 316 austenitic stainless steels is for the structures supporting the nuclear core in the reactor pressure vessel. This is generally a bolted structure of horizontal formers and vertical baffle plates that, because of its proximity to the nuclear fuel, is very heavily neutron irradiated.
Nevertheless, the two are clearly closely related. IGA/IGSCC varies greatly with height of the tube support plate in recirculating steam generators, being much more prevalent at the lower levels where the temperature difference between the primary and secondary fluids is greatest. This is clearly strong evidence for the importance of impurity hideout, which increases as a function of the available superheat on the secondary side. Broached tube support plates minimize the extent of the narrow gap between the tube and its support plate and hence substantially reduce the tendency for impurity hideout in such locations.
