VOCALIST Report Summary

Project ID: FIKS-CT-2000-00090
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C
Country: Germany

Database of small-specimen test results

In Vocalist a substantial database of test results has been compiled describing the effects of crack-tip constraint on the cleavage and ductile fracture behaviour of as-received and degraded materials relevant to ferritic RPV components and piping. The characterisation test results have provided added confidence in the use of sub-size specimens to determine the Master Curve reference temperature, T0, for as-received and degraded ferritic RPV materials.
