Heavy-Section Steel Technology and Irradiation Programs—Retrospective and Prospective Views

In 1965, the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), at the advice of the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS), initiated the process that resulted in the establishment of the Heavy Section Steel

The Measurement of Residual Stresses A modification of the Sachs " boring-out " method is used to measure residual stress present in gas tungsten-arc welds made in Hastelloy N

A modification of the Sachs "boring-out" method for determining residual stresses has been developed. This technique permits the determination of the distribution of the stresses and their levels

Evaluation of the liability to brittle fracture of turbine rotors made from medium strength steel

Conclusions1.It is established that it is impossible to evaluate the tendency of materials to brittle fracture from the embrittlement, as determined from specific values of the impact strength, since

ANALYSIS OF ENGINEERING AND BASIC RESEARCH ASPECTS OF NEUTRON EMBRITTLEMENT OF STEELS

A summary is given of (a) the present status of fracturesafe engineering design for steel structures, with emphasis on the role of the nil ductility transition temperature in brittle fracture

A STUDY OF THE APPLICABILITY OF ACOUSTIC EMISSION TO PRESSURE VESSEL TESTING

Abstract : This report describes a series of experiments designed to assess the practical capability of acoustic emission to indicate stress and/or deformation in a structure, as well as to offer a

Corrosion of Carbon and Low-Alloy Steels In Out-of-Pile Boiling-Water-Reactor Environment

Abstract Results are reported of extensive corrosion testing of carbon and low-alloy steels in a dynamic test loop simulating the various environments found in a nuclear boiling-water-reactor syste...
