“Prediction of the Effects of Radiation For reactor pressure vessel and in-core Materials using multi-scale modelling – 60 years foreseen plant lifetime (PERFORM60)”
7th Framework Programme, EURATOM, 2009-2013
BG H2 Society and 15 more partners from France, Belgium, Germany, UK, Finland, Czech Republic and Spain.
In nuclear power plants, materials undergo degradation due to severe irradiation conditions that may limit their operational life. Continuous progress in the physical understanding of the phenomena involved in irradiation damage and environmental effects, and continuous progress in computer sciences encroach the development of multi-scale numerical tools able to simulate the materials behaviour in nuclear environment.
