Fracture Properties of Irradiated A533B,Cl.1, A508,Cl.3, and 15Ch2NMFAA Reactor Pressure Vessel Steel


Within the framework of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Coordinated Research Program (CRP) phase III, radiation embrittlement studies were performed on A533,C1.1 and A508,C1.3 reactor pressure vessel steels. Obtained results are compared with radiation embrittlement of 15Ch2NMFAA commercially produced steel, used for WWER-1000 reactor pressure vessel production, in terms of Charpy impact energies and fracture toughness, measured as a function of temperature.
