Abstract

The various supercritical water-cooled reactor concepts being developed under the Generation IV International Forum are the natural evolution of the water-cooled reactor technology that has successfully supplied the majority of nuclear-based electricity since the dawn of commercial nuclear power generation. The materials challenges that must be addressed in the development of a supercritical water-cooled reactor are in most respects the same as those experienced by the current generations of water-cooled reactors. This chapter summarizes current knowledge of corrosion and environmentally assisted cracking phenomena under the conditions expected in the core of a supercritical water-cooled reactor, with an emphasis on recent advances in experiment and modeling.
