Structural Integrity Of Nuclear Power Plant: Learning From History And Looking To The Future

Structural Integrity Of Nuclear Power Plant: Learning From History And Looking To The Future

This book covers the proceedings of the TAGSI/FESI Symposium on “Structural Integrity of Nuclear Power Plant: learning from history and looking to the future”, held in April 2013. The Symposium was dedicated to the late Professor Sir Alan Cottrell FRS FREng. Nuclear structural integrity was one of the many areas where Sir Alan had a very important guiding influence, which resulted in the UK achieving safe operation of nuclear plants over the last 40 to 50 years. By reflecting upon the past and looking to the future, this book contains messages that are relevant across the whole field of engineering structural integrity.
