Paper Title:
Evaluation of the Degradation Characteristics of CF-8A Cast Stainless Steel Using Indentation Techniques and EDS
  Abstract

Cast austenitic stainless steel piping pump, valve casings and elbows are susceptible to reductions in toughness and ductility because of long term exposure at the operating temperatures in the LWR (light water reactor). In this study, the three classes of thermally aged CF-8A cast austenitic stainless steel specimens were prepared using an artificially accelerated aging method for 0, 2,679 and 3,572 hours at 400oC. An indentation technique was applied to evaluate of the thermal aging of CF-8A cast austenitic stainless steel. We have performed indentation tests (automated ball indentation and nano-indentation) and EDS (energy dispersive spectroscopy) in order to characterize the micro-structural changes of the phase with aging. The fracture toughness of aged CF-8A cast stainless steel was determined by standard fracture toughness tests and automated ball indentation techniques.
