Addressing Aging Management Issues during the License Renewal Process
Sponsored by the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation
This poster presentation discusses the license renewal application process, including time-limited aging analyses and the integrated plant assessment, which describes the systems, structures, and components subject to aging management. It informs stakeholders about different aging management issues identified and addressed during the NRC license renewal review process. Issues include concrete degradation, blocked piping, selective leaching, and corrosion. The examples highlight the importance of maintaining effective aging management programs to detect and mitigate aging effects before the loss of intended function of structures and components adversely affects performance.
