The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has had a series of reactor pressure vessel (RPV) structural integrity programs that started back in the 1970s. These Coordinated Research Projects most recently have focused on use of the Master Curve fracture toughness testing approach for RPV and other ferritic steel components and on the issue of pressurized thermal shock (PTS) in operating pressurized water reactors. This paper will provide the current status for these projects and discuss the implications for improved safety of key ferritic steel components in nuclear power plants (NPPs).
