1. Finite element simulations of sub-size Charpy tests and associated transferability to toughness results

    European Structural Integrity Society 30:469 (2002)

    Charpy-V test results are widely used for the surveillance program of RPV (Reactor Pressure Vessel) embrittlement by neutron irradiation. Service life extension of nuclear power plants and more stringent safety requirements increase the request for small test specimens such as sub-size...
