French approach on the definition of reference defects to be considered for fracture mechanics analyses at design state

Abstract

This document describes the french approach for verifying fracture resistance of PWR primary components. Three reference defects have been defined, namely the envelope defect, the exceptional defect and the conventional defect. It appears that a precise estimation of the available margins may be obtained by analyzing a set of reference defects representative of the flaws likely to exist in the components. (TEC). 5 refs.
