Abstract

In the field of material properties and structural behaviour of LMFBR reactor components under normal operation and accident conditions, the CEC has promoted an experimental study on the mechanical properties of welded austenitic steel type AISI 316L. Five different welding methods have been examined. This report describes the results of the first phase of the project, i.e. manufacturing and characterisation of welded austenitic steel and the test matrix adopted to test the mechanical resistance of the weldings. The results of the mechanical testing and the relative comparison of the five welding methods are described in a second volume (EUR 13030). As a general conclusion, the vacuum electron-beam welding proved to have better properties than the other weld methods and to attain in most cases the properties of the parent material.
