European Tools and Methodologies for an efficient ageing management of nuclear power plant Cables


Measurement protocols

State of the art, Round Robin test of micro and macroscale systematic measurements, definition of a common protocol for most regular measures including SEM examination possibilities, complex permittivity and hardness / indentation possibilities.

Multi-scale models or relations for unaged polymers

Based on bibliographic studies, discussion with partners of WP5 in charge of the development of NDT, and on measurements carried out on new polymers in WP3, this deliverable will report the definition of the mechanical behaviour law chosen to model mechanical properties of pure and filled polymers in the unaged state, the relation of the polymer structure with data coming from terahertz and microwave measurements, the relation of the polymer structure with data coming from dielectric measurements, the validation of these models and relations by comparison with experimental data obtained in WP3.
