ELASTO-PLASTIC FRACTURE MECHANICS CHARACTERIZATION OF TYPE 316H IRRADIATED STAINLESS STEEL UP TO IDPA
The subject research concerns a vast irradiation programme of the stainless steel material that is used extensively in LMFBR's irremoveable primary circuit components. Irradiation covering the 0.1 dpa, 0.3 dpa, 1 dpa and 2 dpa neutron damage have been planned. The results presented concern the nought, 0.1 dpa, 0.3 dpa and 1 dpa irradiations. Irradiation and tests are conducted at 350 degrees C and 550 degrees C on plane sided, 3 point bend bars. The 316H steel has been considered in the base condition, the welded deposits and the heat affected zone material. To study the stable crack extension with rising loads behaviour of this steel, crack growth resistance curves have been elaborated using key curves.
