Abstract

The research in four new technological areas aiming to the improvement of structural safety of mechanical components and pipings is presented. These are primarily applied to primary piping but the same approach can be applied to other components as well. Risk informed inservice inspection is a new concept that can be applied to all safety relevant systems of the plant. Similarily the computer simulation of ultrasonic inspection can be applied to all components where ultrasonic inspection is used to evaluate the structural integrity and high reliability of inspection is expected. Besides these two practical approaches the research on corrosion - water chemistry interaction and fluid - structure interaction is summarised.
