Materials ageing and performance

nuclear-energy-insider 200No two nuclear power plants are identical, and with more plants nearing the re-licensing stage, developing multi-scale modelling tools to predict materials ageing and performance is needed more than ever.

Predicting materials performance in a nuclear power plant (NPP) over a long term period is a tricky business. No two are identical. Scientists therefore cannot make ready generalisations about the impacts of running the plant on materials within it.
