Abstract

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC's) Offices of Nuclear Regulatory Research (RES), Nuclear Reactor Regulation (NRR) and New Reactors (NRO) organized this Workshop on Additive Manufacturing for Reactor Materials & Components (AM-RMC). The workshop was held November 28-29, 2017, at NRC Headquarters, 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland.

The NRC had been earlier informed in mid-2017 that reactor components made by additive manufacturing (AM), and especially by powder bed fusion/direct metal laser melting (DMLM)/sintering, were being considered for applications in the operating fleet as early as calendar year 2018. Given the anticipated level of activity, the objectives for this public meeting were to:

(1) Engage with industry and Government counterparts to obtain information needed foranticipated licensing actions related to AM.

(2) Address topics such as:

  • The state-of-the-art of AM
  • Industry activities in AM
  • Irradiation testing & effects on AM
  • AM qualification
  • Standards for AM
  • Nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of components fabricated using AM
  • American AM activity in international context
  • Cyber-security for AM
  • Regulatory perspectives
  • Computer modeling
  • AM in nuclear fuel
