In nuclear power reactors, materials undergo degradation due to severe irradiation conditions that may limit their operational life. Utilities that operate these reactors need to quantify the ageing and the potential degradations of Reactor Pressure Vessels (RPVs) and also of RPV Internals structures to ensure safe and reliable plant operation.
