OVERVIEW OF THE RESEARCH PROGRAMMES OF THE EURATOM JRC ISPRA IN THE FIELD OF LMFBR MATERIALS PROPERTIES
The activity of the Commission of the European Communities (CEC) regarding the harmonization of codes and standards for the construction of LMFBR's is presented in a paper by D. S. WOOD and A. TERZAGHI. This paper presents the CEC's Joint Research Centre's research programme on LMFBR materials which concerns four areas: a) High temperature tensile properties. b) Investigations on creep/fatigue interaction in stainless steels. c) The measurement of dynamic materials properties taking into account the effects of irradiation and prior damage due to creep and fatigue. d) Work on fracture mechanics, mainly oriented on the measurement of fracture toughness and crack growth resistance curves of irradiated austenitic stainless steels. A general description of this work is given and the main conclusions drawn from the available results.
