Paper No: PVP2020-21583
... Abstract The inner surfaces of ferritic steel pressure vessels are often coated with a weld-deposited layer of austenitic cladding for the purpose of corrosion resistance. UK practice of assessing the defect tolerance by postulating defects in components leads to the requirement for a fracture...
