The results of electrochemicaI, static and dynamic tests are given, each
experiment being designed to study one or several of the following factors:
- Surface preparation
- Temperature effects from 40°C to 150°C
- Hydrogen pick-up in the metal
- Impurities in the cooling water
- Thermal cyciling
_ Thermal flux
- Neutron and gamma irradiation of additives to the water during storage of spent fuel elements
