1 Hungarian Academy of Sciences KFKI Atomic Energy Research Institute Behaviour of irradiated RPV cladding F. Gillemot, M. Horváth, G. Úri, H-W. Viehrig, L. Debarberis, T. Fekete, E. Houndeffo 1 th Hungarian-Ukrain Joint Conference April 2oo6 Miskolc

2 Hungarian Academy of Sciences KFKI Atomic Energy Research Institute 2 Why Clad is important?   In European reactors: crack can propagate from clad –mostly no crack arrest curve!   The highest stress peak during PTS: at clad-base material interface   After some mm-es much less stress   Without the knowing of irradiated clad properties, no elastic-plastic analysis!!   The best mitigation is to reduce unnecessary conservatives   Dave-Bessy event. Clad as structural material saved the unit   1 th Hungarian-Ukrain Joint Conference April 2oo6 Miskolc
