Economic Evaluation of Maintenance Strategies for Steam Generator Tubes Using Probabilistic Fracture Mechanics and a Financial Method

Abstract:

Article Preview

As an application of probabilistic fracture mechanics (PFM) and a financial method, a risk-benefit model was developed for the purpose of optimizing maintenance activities of steam generator (SG) tubes used in pressurized water reactors (PWRs). To justify whether or not it is worth while implementing the selected maintenance strategy in terms of an economic point of view, net present value (NPV) was calculated as an index which is one of the most fundamental financial indices for decision-making based on the discounted cash flow (DCF) method.
