Development of Nuclear Piping Integrity Expert System(I) - Evaluation Method RecomMendation and Material Properties Inference - Kim, Yeong-Jin; Seok, Chang-Seong; Choe, Yeong-Hwan;
The objective of this paper is to develop an expert system for nuclear piping integrity. This paper describes the selection methodology of integrity evalution method and the inference of material properties. To select the integrity evaluation method, the weight factor for respective material properties was obtained by the sensitivity analysis of the effect of material properties on integrity evaluation method. Subsequently the possession ratio for respective integrity evaluation method was computed, and the most appropriate integrity evaluation method for given input information is selected. In the material properties inference, stress-strain curves and J-R curves were predicted from tensile properties such as yield strength and tensile strength.
