Comparison of European codes and standards on the welding of LMFBR components and proposals for their harmonization
A comparative study has been conducted within the framework of the comparisons of specifications and standards for fast reactors in the following specialised fields: - welding supervisor, welder; - welder's tests; - production test specimens of welds, and - measures to prevent mistakes with weld material. The relevant specifications were forwarded by the national delegations of Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom. On the basis of numerous comparison criteria and in a qualitative and basic form, the study points out areas of agreement and differences between the national standards, as well as instances of a complete lack of common ground. The aim of this study was to prepare a recommendation which can be adopted by all the participating countries in the construction of breeder reactors.
