Studies of the crack initiation and notch sensitivity behaviour of gilsocarbon

Abstract:

To better understand the initiation of axial cracks in the graphite moderator bricks of advanced gas-cooled nuclear reactors, the development of a test suitable for measuring notch sensitivity from small specimens would be valuable. The test geometry is constrained, currently, to be under 20 mm in two dimensions. There is limited data on the notch sensitivity of Gilsocarbon, particularly after exposure to a nuclear environment. For the potential small specimen test geometries the microstru...
