REVIEW OF SAFETY-RELATED OCCURRENCES FROM
A MATERIALS PERFORMANCE POINT OF VIEW
R. L. Scott, Jr.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory*
Oak Ridge, Tennessee
Safety related occurrences - failures, incidents and
deficiencies - reported by light water reactor nuclear power
plants are reviewed. The period covered is 1967 through 1972.
The items selected for review were limited to those in which a
material failure was involved. Tables were prepared for each
year which indicates the facility and components involved, the
cause of failure, and the area in which the deficiency originated,
i.e., material selection, design, fabrication, installation, opera-
tion, or maintenance. The tables are discussed, and areas where
additional efforts can be made to improve materials performance
