Description

The plan to increase the life cycle of nuclear power stations opens up a new field of investigation for methods of characterizing materials. One of the main problems encountered by the operator is knowing how to evaluate the remaining useful life of components in its generating unit to prevent critical parts from suddenly breaking in service [1]. The aim is to end up with indicators of the degree of damage suffered by metal structures using nondestructive measurement tests whose effectiveness will have been proved in an industrial environment.
