- The program comprises studies related to the technology of materials fabricated into thick-section primary-coolant containment systems of light-water-cooled nuclear power reactors. The principal area of investigation is the behavior and structural integrity of steel pressure vessels containing cracklike flaws. Current work is organized into the following tasks: fracture mechanics analyses and investigations, effect of high-temperature primary reactor water on the subcritical crack growth of reactor vessel steel, investigations of irradiated materials, pressure vessel investigations, and thermal shock investigations, and weld-heat-affected-zone cracking. Progress on work under the four existing research and development subcontracts is included in this report. (DLC)
