Reactor Pressure vessel surveillance
2014 (English)In: Nuclear Engineering International, ISSN 0029-5507, Vol. 59, no 12, 19-20 p.Article in journal, Editorial material (Refereed) Published
This publication summarizes techniques suitable for surveillance program for the objective of long term operation (LTO) on European NPPs and provides recommendations on reactor pressure vessel (RPV) irradiation surveillance based on the work preformed in the work package 7 "Surveillance guidelines" of the LONGLIFE international project. The LONGLIFE project "treatment of long term irradiation embrittlement effects in RPV safety assessment" was 50% funded by the Euratom 7th framework programme of the European commision. The project coordinated by the Helmholtz-centrum Dresden Rossendorf successfully finalized in 2014.
