International Review of Nuclear Reactor Pressure Vessel Surveillance Programs

Editor(s): William L. Server, Milan Brumovský

Technical experts from 11 countries share their knowledge and experience working with nuclear reactor pressure vessel surveillance programs in this special publication.

Topics discussed include actual surveillance capsule testing and associated results; applications to evaluating the irradiated material toughness results; and identification of problem areas identified from conducting international surveillance programs.

The 24 peer-reviewed papers are divided into five key categories:

– Bases for RPV Surveillance Programs
– Neutron Dosimetry for Surveillance Programs
– National Surveillance Programs
– Surveillance for Long-Term Operation
– Experience from Surveillance Programs

Sponsored by ASTM International Committee E10 on Nuclear Technology and Applications, this publication features papers that were presented at the June 2016 Workshop on Nuclear Reactor Pressure Vessel Surveillance Programs held in Chicago, IL.
