Research Engineer at EDF R&D since 2000, within the Department of Fluid Mechanics, Energy and Environment (MFEE). This Department provides the EDF Group with expertise in fluid mechanics, heat transfer and energy systems.
Experimental validation of computational fluid dynamics studies for Flow Accelerated Corrosion in a straight DN100 heated pipe
Research Engineer at EDF R&D since 2000, within the Department of Fluid Mechanics, Energy and En [...]
Chan Ching is a professor in the department of mechanical engineering at McMaster University in Canada. He has worked extensively in the area of Flow Accelerated Corrosion, in collaboration with Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. In particular, he has determined the effect of having a second bend in close proximity to the first bend on the wall thinning rates in back to back bends. Recently, a new non-destructive methodology was developed to determine local mass transfer rates in bends that uses x-ray computed tomography.
Development of surface roughness in pipes and its effect on mass transfer

J.F. Coste has a Ph.D. in Materials Science from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne and Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon. He was appointed in 1997 as research engineer at EDF R&D in Fontainebleau where he worked on material ageing of primary circuit components.
In 2004 he moved to CHOOZ Nuclear Power Plant at the French-Belgian border. He has worked there for two years as maintenance engineer on primary circuit components and was then appointed as Head of the Inspection unit, responsible for the surveillance of pressurized components. In 2011 he has moved to UNIE, a corporate engineering unit of the Nuclear Production Division. Since then, he is since in charge of the maintenance of the balance-of-plant main components (condensers, high and low pressure feedwater exchangers, moisture separator reheater).
Surveillance and repair of NPP moister re-heater affected by FAC

Damien Delacoux is a graduate of the European School of Materials Science and Engineering in Nancy (France) and the University of Saarland (Germany). He has been a member of EDF’s General Technical Division since 2011. He is in charge of the application and development of innovative NDE inspections for FAC-affected welds and complex geometries in NPPs. Not only does he monitor and oversee their application out in the field, he also provides on-site support and semi-automatic tool development to end-users of BRT-CICERO™ FAC-prediction software.
