Kinetic degradation model for insulating materials used on nuclear power plant safety cables

Abstract

A new degradation model for safety cables in nuclear power plants that incorporates the critical antioxidant concentration concept is proposed in order to account for the effect of antioxidants and to simulate several synergisms in various thermal and radiation environments. A chemical reaction scheme is used to represent oxidation reactions via the… (More)
