Abstract : The report is presented to cover the 'recovery of ductility' of the SM-1A reactor vessel steel as a result of the 'in-place' annealing. It discusses the pre-annealing vessel lifetime, the general annealing techniques used, the surveillance specimen program to evaluate the recovery, the recovery accomplished, and the estimated lifetime of the annealed reactor vessel.
