Limit Strains for Severe Accident Conditions - Description of a European Research Program and First Results
The failure strains for a large variety of specimens from reactor pressure vessel material will be investigated. Of special interest is the dependence of the failure strains on the size of the specimens. The research program and first results are outlined. Based on the findings limit strains will be proposed which should be acceptable under severe accident conditions.
