INcreasing safety in NPPs by Covering gaps in Environmental Fatigue Assessment

The global objective of INCEFA-PLUS project (carried out from July 2015 to June 2020) is to develop new guidelines for assessment of environmental fatigue damage susceptibility for nuclear power plant (NPP) components.

The project is divided in two main parts:

The first is focused on the characterization of a limited selection of typical austenitic stainless steel alloys employed in NPPs;

The second part of this project involves the development of a modified procedure for estimating the fatigue degradation of the materials.
