Nuclear Plant Fatigue Application (NPFA) Workshop

NPFA 2020 – Abstracts being accepted now!


Structural Integrity is hosting the NPFA workshop November 2 – 6, 2020 in New Orleans, LA in conjunction with the EPRI International Nuclear Reactor Materials Reliability Conference. The NPFA is a forum for discussion of fatigue issues facing utility plant staff. The goal of the workshop is to provide practical lessons and knowledge transfer which can be applied to fatigue management at nuclear power plants. The audience for the meeting includes utility staff with responsibilities in the areas of operations, system engineering and maintenance, and engineering supervision. Engineering vendors and consultants are also invited to participate to share their experience with managing day- to- day fatigue issues, supporting equipment qualification, and conducting fatigue evaluations, including addressing environmentally assisted fatigue. Researchers working in the areas of fundamental understanding of fatigue phenomena, fatigue crack growth, and environmentally assisted fatigue are also encouraged to participate.
