This symposium contains technical papers on the corrosion and degradation of materials in nuclear systems. This includes technical papers on the understanding and mitigation of corrosion degradation in buried piping in nuclear power plants taking into consideration the complexity and congestion in the plants. On buried piping issues, the symposium features regulatory requirements and issues related to grounding, bimetallic contacts, piping isolation, decoupling, materials selection, inspection of piping and coatings, and acceptance criteria for cathodic protection in such a congested environment.
