Towards Safe Long-Term Operation of Reactor Pressure Vessels
2015 (English)In: ATW. Internationale Zeitschrift für Kernenergie, ISSN 1431-5254, Vol. 60, no 5, 287-293 p.Article in journal, Editorial material (Refereed) Published
This publication summarizes the long term operation (LTO) conditions 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.
