Corrosion is a significant concern for many components on nuclear power generation facilities. Left unresolved, corrosion can cause serious damage that can be difficult to resolve.
This course focuses on fundamentals, causes and control of corrosion in light water reactors (LWRs). LWR corrosion degradation mechanisms covered include general/uniform corrosion, galvanic corrosion, de-alloying corrosion, crevice corrosion, pitting corrosion, intergranular attack (IGA), corrosion fatigue/environmentally assisted fatigue (EAF), intergranular stress corrosion cracking (IGSCC), primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC) and irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking (IASCC). Course includes a reference manual anda flash drive copy of the class.
Nuclear program engineers, designers, maintenance engineers, chemists, inspectors, and regulators who desire a practical knowledge of LWR corrosion degradation mechanisms and their mitigation.
This course provides the technical background necessary to understand the nature of corrosion phenomena and its implications for reactor safety. What makes this course unique is that it identifies real-world applications, relates the relevance to the NRC's surveillance requirements, as well as covers case histories of each type of degradation.
Register for the training course by May 8th to receive a “Corrosion and Corrosion Control in LWRs color manual.
