Kalyanasundaram, P and Raj, B and Kasiviswanathan, KV and Jayakumar, T and Murthy, CRL (1992) Leak Detection In Pressure Tubes Of A Pressurized Heavy-Water Reactor By Acoustic-Emission Technique. In: British Journal of Non-destructive Testing, 34 (11). pp. 539-543.Full text not available from this repository.
Leak detection in the fuel channels is one of the challenging problems during the in-service inspection (ISI) of Pressurised Heavy Water Reactors (PHWRs). In this paper, the use of an acoustic emission (AE) technique together with AE signal analysis is described, to detect a leak that was ncountered in one (or more) of the 306 fuel channels of the Madras Atomic Power Station (PHWR), Unit I. The paper describes the problems encountered during the ISI, the experimental methods adopted and the results obtained. Results obtained using acoustic emission signal analysis are compared with those obtained from other leak detection methods used in such cases.
