Description

For structural components which are exposed to cyclic stresses, fatigue damage could lead to a catastrophic failure. In nuclear pressure vessel systems where A533B steel is widely used as structural material, cyclic thermal expansions often create a low-cycle fatigue condition. The evaluation of fatigue damage therefore is critically important and nondestructive evaluation of fatigue damage is highly desirable from the viewpoint of both safer and longer operation lifetime.
