Title of Contract, Award, or Gift: Faculty Development Program at the University of Texas at San Antonio: Probabilistic Risk Assessment of Stress Corrosion Cracking in Nuclear Facilities

Name of Granting or Contracting Agency/Entity: US Nuclear Regulatory Comm

CFDA: 77.008

Program Title: N/A

Note:

The faculty development program will support two tenure-track professors to become leading scholars in the development of methodologies to evaluate the risk of stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in nuclear facilities. The proposed program is structured to enrich the professors’ tenure-track portfolio in the three areas that are used to evaluate faculty performance: a) Research, b) Teaching, and c) Service. The young investigators will be provided resources to: a) develop a pioneering research program on SCC testing and modeling, b) create an educational program focused on the fundamentals of corrosion, fracture mechanics and probabilistic risk assessment with applications to nuclear safety issues and c) engage in external service activities to ensure that research findings are incorporated into practices or policies. In addition, the young investigators will be under a mentoring plan established between the Associate Dean for Research of the College of Engineering, Engineering department chairs and personnel from the Environmental Performance of Materials Section of Southwest Research Institute.
