Fracture toughness and crack growth rates of irradiated austenitic stainless steels by O. K Chopra ( )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Austenitic stainless steels (SSs) are used extensively as structural alloys in the internal components of reactor pressure vessels because of their superior fracture toughness properties. However, exposure to high levels of neutron irradiation for extended periods leads to significant reduction in the fracture resistance of these steels. Experimental data are presented on fracture toughness and crack growth rates (CGRs) of austenitic SSs irradiated to fluence levels up to 2.0 x 10{sup 21} n/cm{sup 2} (E> 1 MeV) ({approx}3.0 dpa) at {approx}288 C. Crack growth tests were conducted under cycling loading and long hold time trapezoidal loading in simulated boiling water reactor (BWR) environments, and fracture toughness tests were conducted in air. Neutron irradiation at 288 C decreases the fracture toughness of the steels; the data from commercial heats fall within the scatter band for the data obtained at higher temperatures. In addition, the results indicate significant enhancement of CGRs of the irradiated steels in normal water chemistry BWR environment; the CGRs for irradiated steels are a factor of {approx}5 higher than the disposition curve proposed for sensitized austenitic SSs. The rates decreased by more than an order of magnitude in low-dissolved-oxygen BWR environment
The human performance evaluation process a resource for reviewing the identification and resolution of human performance problems by Valerie Elizabeth Barnes ( )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Human Performance Evaluation Process (HPEP) is a resource for U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission inspectors to use when reviewing licensee problem identification and resolution programs with regard to human performance. Part I provides a step-by-step process for reviewing licensee effectiveness in identifying, analyzing and resolving human performance problems. Part I also addresses the challenges in identifying and investigating human performance problems, describes three root cause analysis techniques, and discusses characteristics of effective corrective action plans. Part II is comprised of the HPEP Cause Tree and Modules. The Cause Tree is a screening tool for identifying the range of possible causes for a human performance problem. The Modules describe frequently identified causes for human performance problems and provide examples. Part II is intended to support the evaluation of licensee root cause analyses for human performance problems identified in Part I
