In FY 2000, a 3-year testing program of eroded piping was initiated with the following objectives: 1) to ascertain the seismic safety margins for eroded piping designed under the current seismic design code, 2) to clarify the elasto-plastic response and ultimate strength of eroded nuclear piping. A series of tests on eroded piping components and eroded piping systems was planned. In this paper, the results of those tests are presented and analyzed, focusing on the influence of the form and the number of thinned-wall portions on the fatigue life of the piping.
