Abstract

ENPOWER is a EURATOM collaborative research project sponsored by the European Union. The aim is to produce advanced weld repair techniques and residual stress mitigation procedures for nuclear components in order to eliminate the need for expensive global Post-Weld Heat Treatment (PWHT). These procedures are based on weld repair optimisation combined with novel Alternative Post Weld Treatments (APWT).
