Abstract
Flow-Accelerated Corrosion (FAC) of low alloy steel piping is one of the major aging problems in nuclear power plants including pressurized water reactors (PWR). FAC involves gradual thinning of pipe or tube walls in a localized area of high pressure, high temperature feedwater piping when the affected area can no longer withstand the inside pressure. Sudden failures have been known to occur when slow FAC damage can lead to abrupt
