Reactor pressure vessel steels ASME SA533B and SA508 Cl.2: Microstructural investigations

Reijo Pelli, Pertti Nenonen, Markku Kemppainen, Kari Törrönen

Research output: Book/ReportReport

Abstract

The report presents the results of the microstructural studies of steels SA533B and SA508 C1.2 obtained in connection with a programme initiated to gather and create information needled for the assessment of structural integrity of the reactor pressure vessels. The as-quenched and variably tempered microstructures were studied with optical, scanning and transmission electron microscopes.
