“Machine learning in nondestructive estimation of neutron-induced reactor pressure vessel embrittlement”

Abstract:  Neutron radiation from the nuclear reactor core causes the embrittlement of the reactor pressure vessel steel alloys. Traditionally, reactor pressure vessel steel alloy embrittlement is monitored using destructive techniques. This can lead to problems in the long-term operation of the power plant. The use of supervised machine learning algorithms has been studied in predicting the embrittlement based on nondestructive measurements.

(In Finnish) Marjatta ja Eino Kollin Säätiö

Säätiön tehtävänä on tukea tieteellistä sekä soveltavaa tutkimusta ja kehitystyötä myöntämällä apurahoja hankkeiden toteuttajille. Säätiö tarjoaa mahdollisuuksia yksittäisille tutkijoille ja kehittäjille sekä tutkimus-/ kehittäjäryhmille. Haasteena on ruokkia nimenomaan sellaista kehitystä, jolla olisi elinympäristömme kannalta positiivista vaikutusta pitkällä tähtäimellä. Apurahojen hakuaika on jatkuva.
