INFLUENCE OF RADIATION DAMAGE OF REACTOR INNER COMPONENTS ON THE RESULTS OF INDENTATION TESTS

Jan Ondracek, Ales Materna

Abstract


Irradiation of inner components of the WWER reactor type made from austenitic steel 08Ch18N10T alters their material properties and may cause component degradation. Numerical simulations of the indentation test on the non- and neutron-irradiated reactor's inner components were carried out. The aim of this study is to find out whether the indentation test is suitable for assessing the material radiation damage of studied components.
