About Our Group
To establish reliability of the nuclear plant component materials against corrosion under severe corrosive environments, our group has three research activities; the study on corrosion mechanisms, the study on simulation test and life-prediction methods for the actual components, and the development of excellent corrosion resistant materials.
(1)Researches on corrosion mechanisms of nuclear reprocessing plant materials
In nuclear fuel reprocessing plants, materials are exposed to severe corrosion environment by concentrated boiling nitric acid solution. Researches and developments are carrying out to prevent or improve degradation of materials against the nuclear reprocessing plant environment, as follows;
(2) Researches on corrosion mechanisms of Light Water Reactor (LWR)
To prevent degradation of materials in LWR condition, researches and developments are carrying out as follows;
