Standard Practice for Evaluation of Surveillance Capsules from Light-Water Moderated Nuclear Power Reactor Vessels

Available format(s)

Hardcopy , PDF

Superseded date




Published date


1.1 This practice covers the evaluation of test specimens and dosimetry from light water moderated nuclear power reactor pressure vessel surveillance capsules.

1.2 This practice is one of a series of standard practices that outline the surveillance program required for nuclear reactor pressure vessels. The surveillance program monitors the radiation-induced changes in the ferritic steels that comprise the beltline of a light-water moderated nuclear reactor pressure vessel.

1.3 This practice along with its companion surveillance program practice, Practice E 185, is intended for application in monitoring the properties of beltline materials in any light-water moderated nuclear reactor.

1.4 Modifications to the standard test program and supplemental tests will be described in a separate Standard that is under development to accompany this standard practice and Practice E 185.
