Description

The inspection of nuclear power plant is one of the most demanding fields in which non-destructive evaluation (NDE) is required to be performed. In Europe, the proposed next generation of nuclear reactors are liquid metal cooled fast breeder reactors (LMFBR). This paper reports on an investigation into the feasibility of using eddy current techniques for inspecting the primary austenitic vessel of the LMFBR.
