about this item

Stress Corrosion Cracking of Nickel Based Alloys in Water-Cooled Nuclear Reactors: The Coriou Effectpresents the latest information on brittle failure of metals in corrosive chemical environments under the influence of tensile stresses.

Nickel alloys are more resistant to SCC as well as high temperatures and have been widely used in more challenging environments such as nuclear power plants. However, these alloys can suffer SCC under certain conditions, resulting in component failure. A key figure in understanding the mechanisms of SCC in nickel alloys in water-cooled nuclear reactors is Henri Coriou of the CEA, France’s leading center for nuclear research. This book assesses his work in the context of the latest research on SCC in nickel alloys in nuclear power plants.

  • Up-to-date reviews of recent research findings from leading experts in the field
  • Authoritative and comprehensively reviewed by the Working Party 4 on Nuclear Corrosion
  • Showcases the excellent quality and technical accomplishments of Henri Coriou and CEA
