Water chemistry affects material-water interactions in nuclear reactors and its control helps in mitigating corrosion, radiation build-up and maintaining fuel clad integrity in the primary circuit. Water chemistry control is not only important in power reactors and is also of importance in research reactors. Future supercritical water nuclear reactors would have more aggressive conditions and corrosion due to material-water interactions which is the primary challenge in its design.

Water chemistry control in the secondary circuit of nuclear reactors is of prime importance in mitigating flow accelerated corrosion of carbon steel pipelines. Generic corrosion problems such as stress-corrosion cracking in austenitic stainless steels and high nickel containing alloys in boiling water reactors has been alleviated by effective water chemistry control.

The symposium focuses on the operating experiences in different types of nuclear reactors, water chemistry issues in both the primary and the secondary circuit, ageing management, corrosion issues, decontamination and decommissioning of nuclear reactors and water chemistry during accident conditions of a nuclear reactor. This symposium is a forum where the knowledge gained through the operating experiences of the nuclear power plants is shared and the new developments in this field are brought out.
