Abstract:

This report describes research progress in a continuing program to characterize materials properties performance with respect to structural integrity of light water reactor pressure boundary components. Progress for this reporting period is summarized in the following areas a evaluation of critical factors in crack growth rate studies in a pressurized water reactor environment, b irradiation and postirradiation annealing heat treatment study of the toughness of pressure vessel steels having a low upper shelf level and c J integral characterization of an A302B steel having a low upper shelf energy.
