Steam generator Tube Integrity Program. Quarterly report, January 1--March 31, 1977. [PWR]

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Progress is summarized in a laboratory research program to investigate the failure characteristics of artificially defected steam generator tubes representative of those found in PWR steam generators. The primary objectives of the program are: (1) carry out a selected number of burst and collapse tests on baseline and artifically defected tubes representative of tubes presently installed in PWR steam generators, the tests to be conducted in environments similar to those found in service; (2) create controlled defects to be similar to those found in PWR steam generators and fully characterize them by the use of replication and eddy current and/or ... continued below
