ASTM WK40938

    Revision of E185 - 10 Standard Practice for Design of Surveillance Programs for Light-Water Moderated Nuclear Power Reactor Vessels

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E185 - 15e1

    Developed by Subcommittee: E10.02 | Committee E10 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The major changes that are being proposed are summarized as follows: Change in dosimetry reference from E1018 to E853; 5.2.1 relaxation of requirement to include weld if not welds are in the beltline; 5.2.2 allowance for not creating an HAZ if there is no weld in beltline; 5.2.5 recommendation added to create archive weld if weld is outside beltline, but HAZ not required; 5.3.2 recommendation for removal location of baseline vs. capsules specimens to reduce material variability. I would like any comments by the end of July. I will submit for subcommittee ballot in early August.


    Nuclear applications/materials--steel; Nuclear reactor vessels--light-water cooled; Nuclear reactor vessels--surveillance; Radiation exposure--nuclear materials/applications; Repair by welding (for steel for nuclear/special applications); Steel screens;
