European project for the development of HTR technology - materials for the high temperature reactor

Project information

Grant agreement ID: FIKI-CT-2001-00135

  • Start date

    1 October 2001

  • End date

    31 December 2005

Funded under:

FP5-EAECTP C

  • Overall budget:

    € 1 394 974

  • EU contribution

Objective

The development of Advanced High Temperature Reactor (HTR) concepts requires material data information and an understanding of material behaviour under react or operating conditions and environment. For components important to the safety and feasibility of modular designs such as the turbine and the graphite structures (core), investigation of the different materials to be used with respect to long term damage and behaviour in the reactor environment is necessary.
This work identifies and investigates the most promising materials in these areas with respect to time dependent damage and behaviour and provides information that can be used for feasibility investigations of the most promising options for future application.
