Prediction of irradiation damage effects on reactor components.(PERFECT)

Project Details


This project is in collaboration with SCK and many other research institutes

VUB is supporting modeling tools needed to understand and quantify the Irradiation Assisted Stress Corrosion Cracking (IASCC)

VUB will assist in the calculation of electrode potential distribution and concentration profiles in cracks, as a function of environmental and geometrical parameters. The resulting crack tip chemistry and electrochemistry is important with respect to crack propagation. The calculation will first be performed for experimental set-ups and can then readily be applied to components.
