Electric Power Research Institute Extends Collaborative Research Agreement with Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry for Additional Five Years, Through August 2019

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) announced that it is extending its collaborative research agreement with Japan's Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry (CRIEPI) for an additional five years, through August 2019. The joint research effort will focus on materials science, including the performance of materials in nuclear power plant environments and the development of materials better suited for nuclear plant components. As one example of the value from the collaborative research between the two organizations, CRIEPI developed a technique for obtaining much smaller samples for materials testing than is possible using conventional techniques. EPRI then conducted round robin testing on the samples to ensure the methodology provided sufficient quality and repeatability. Moving forward, research will incorporate test data using irradiated samples to develop improved models for assessing the structural integrity of materials over time. Research projects underway or planned for the next five years include: Use of three-dimensional tools at the atomic level to improve understanding of the effects of neutron damage on reactor materials; Development of new materials that are more resistant to radiation damage, leading to greater plant reliability; Evaluation of reactor vessel material susceptibility to cracking and what actions can be taken to monitor and ensure structural integrity throughout the plant's life.
