Fontevraud 10 - Sfen

Fontevraud 10

September 19 to 21, 2022
Conférence internationale


The International Symposium Fontevraud 10, as for the previous editions, will be dedicated to the « Contribution of Materials Investigations and Operating Experience to LWRs’ Safety, Performance and Reliability » and in parallel, it will be the opportunity to revive on FAC conference series, dedicated to Flow Accelerated Corrosion (the last edition being held in 2016).

Presentations will be organized around key technical issues or systems and components : Pressure Vessel Components – Pressure Vessel Internals – Stainless Steel & Nickel-based Alloys Areas – Piping, Pumps, Valves – Steam Generators – Steam-Water Systems – Turbine, Alternator – Fuel, Control Rod Assembly – Civil Engineering.
And for this edition we will address 2 additional topics: Non-metallic Materials & Coatings and FAC Flow Accelerated Corrosion.

This conference is devoted to promote exchanges regarding the feedback provided by materials analyses and investigations for the improvement on the operation and safety of light water nuclear reactors. The topics usually involved in this conference include all experiences gained by operators and research entities in the analysis of field-experienced failures, wear or degradation, detection of defects, components control and any materials research investigation connected to field failures. In this perspective, the Fontevraud Conference is a strong opportunity for operators and researchers to share detailed gained experience provided in the framework of their respective failures investigations programs.

This conference mainly addresses LWRs operating experience from the materials point of view in fields as diverse as surveillance programs, corrosion or fatigue investigations and studies, wear, corrosion and aging management.
