    Abstract

    The purpose of this paper is to disseminate the results of an EURATOM project MULTI-METAL focusing on the structural integrity assessment of dissimilar metal welds. The project started in February 2012 and ended in February 2015. The project is coordinated by VTT with 10 partner organizations from Europe : Technical Research Centre of Finland, Finland (VTT) – Coordinator, AREVA NP, France and Germany (ANP), Commissariat à l’Énergie Atomique et aux energies alternatives, France (CEA), Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, Belgium (JRC), EdF-Energy, United Kingdom (BE), Bay Zoltán Foundation for Applied Research, Hungary (BZF), Electricité de France, France (EDF), TECNATOM, Spain (TEC), Jožef Stefan Institute, Slovenia (JSI), Studsvik Nuclear AB, Sweden (STU). The underlying aim of the project is to provide recommendations for a good practice approach for the integrity assessment (especially testing) of tough dissimilar metal welds as part of overall ductile integrity analyses; this has been presented in the project overview [1]. Experience on typical DMWs concerning manufacturing, residual stresses, flaw assessment and testing have been reviewed. The specimens were taken from mock-ups of welded plates. Three DMWs design variants have been covered: narrow gap DMW with Ni-52, DMW with austenitic steel buttering and a DMW with Nienriched austenitic steel buttering. Mechanical characterization and fracture mechanics testing (CT, SEN(B) and SEN(T) specimens) have been performed. Interpretation of the test has required numerical analysis since the standard ASTM E1820 [2] (CT, SEN(B)) and guidelines dealing with SEN(T) [3][4] are not directly intended to cover DMW.
