Abstract

Residual strain measurements are required for structural integrity evaluation of components in nuclear power plants after seismic loading. In this study, various electromagnetic nondestructive testing methods are applied to estimate small residual strain in austenitic stainless steels and carbon steels that are representative structural materials of nuclear power plants. In view of practical application performance of nondestructive testing methods are evaluated and compared using identical set of specimens with residual strain.
