The focus for the MCFD-2019 Conference is on the approaches used to demonstrate the continued Fitness-for-Service (FFS) of components in Nuclear Power Plants. Ever increasing demands for FFS demonstrations often require innovative and multidisciplinary solutions that involve elements of engineering from: materials, chemistry, stress analysis, thermal-hydraulic analysis, probabilistic assessment methods, examination and inspection approaches, and operational strategies. This is the case for most major nuclear plant systems and components, regardless of reactor type.
Objectives of this conference are:
The conference will be of interest to representatives from various sectors of the Nuclear Industry including: material and equipment vendors, technical and engineering service providers, utility technical staff, regulators, designers, researchers, students, and academia.
