Electrochemistry in light water reactors

Rik-Wouter Bosch, Damien Féron, Jean-Pierre Celis, Steven Van Dyck

    Research outputpeer-review


    There has long been a need for effective methods of measuring corrosion in light water nuclear reactors. This important volume discusses key issues surrounding the development of high temperature reference electrodes and other electrochemical techniques. the book is divided into three parts with Part I reviewing the latest developments in the use of reference electrode technology in both pressurised water and boiling water reactors. Parts II and III cover different types of corrosion and tribocorrosion and ways in which they can be measured using such techniques as electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. Topics covered across the book include in-pile testing, modelling techniques and the tribocorrosion behaviour of stianless steel under reactor conditions.
