Promoting additive manufacturing for nuclear equipment components
Additive manufacturing (AM) will make it possible for the nuclear industry to tackle the problems related to obsolete components and reactor efficiency and safety. The EU-funded NUCOBAM project therefore aims to develop the qualification process and evaluate the in-service behaviour of AM materials, allowing the use of additively manufactured components in nuclear installations. To this end, it will research how to implement AM processes in nuclear design codes and standards in order to create components for nuclear power generation equipment. The project’s results will play a role in advancing the use of AM materials in the nuclear industry.
