NEA issues call to action in report on nuclear cost reductions
A new report from the Paris-based OECD Nuclear Energy Agency declares that nuclear power is needed for countries to meet their Paris Agreement decarbonization and energy security policy goals, but that governmental support for a rapid reduction in the cost of new nuclear capacity through the creation of certain policy frameworks is likely necessary.

To improve the fatigue life assessment of the relatively thin wall structure of the fusion reactor blanket, the fatigue micro-crack initiation behavior of the F82H steel at room temperature was investigated. The micro-crack initiation life was approximately 20–30 % of the fatigue life. The crack initiation was observed at the prior austenitic grain boundary, the packet boundary, the block boundary, and the inside of the block structure. The majority was the transgranular crack initiation, which exceeded 90 % of the all. The effect of the irradiation damage (irradiation hardening) was only a shortening of the micro-crack initiation life. No change of the micro-crack initiation sites and their ratio were observed.
