Published date


1.1This practice covers procedures for monitoring the neutron radiation exposures experienced by ferritic materials in nuclear reactor vessel support structures located in the vicinity of the active core. This practice includes guidelines for:

1.1.1Selecting appropriate dosimetric sensor sets and their proper installation in reactor cavities.

1.1.2Making appropriate neutronics calculations to predict neutron radiation exposures.

1.2This practice is applicable to all pressurized water reactors whose vessel supports will experience a lifetime neutron fluence (E > 1 MeV) that exceeds 1 × 1017 neutrons/cm 2 or 3.0 × 104 dpa.2 (See Terminology E170.)

1.3Exposure of vessel support structures by gamma radiation is not included in the scope of this practice, but see the brief discussion of this issue in 3.2.

1.4This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
