Fracture characterisation of a nuclear vessel steel under dynamic conditions in the transition region

Abstract: The Master Curve (MC) methodology, originally proposed by Kim Wallin, is a standardised engineering tool for analysing the fracture toughness of ferritic steels in the ductile to brittle transition (DBT) region by means of the reference temperature T0. This temperature is normally estimated from quasi-static fracture toughness tests, nevertheless, it has been recently extended to the determination of dynamic fracture toughness. The aim of the present contribution is to characterise the fracture resistance in the DBT region under high strain rate conditions by applying the MC methodology to the steel of the Santa María de Garoña Spanish nuclear power plant (NPP). In this sense, 15 Charpy instrumented tests were performed on pre-cracked specimens from the surveillance program of the plant. The dynamic reference temperature, T0,dyn, was obtained and compared with the quasi-static reference temperature, T0,sta. The reliability of a semi-empirical formula proposed by Wallin to obtain T0,dyn from T0,sta has been analysed for this material.
