PTAN 2017 New Material
Our documents are under copyright
This guide falls within the scope of an overall reflection focused on the conditions for introducing new materials into the RCC-MRx code. Its aim is to present the procedure to be followed for acquiring and gathering the data which describe the physical and mechanical behaviour of the material, necessary to apply the component design rules available in the RCC-MRx code.
Following the formal aspect of the RCC-MRx, these data form the basis of the construction of an appendix A3 specific to the candidate material. This guide is used therefore to complete part — mainly chapters 2 and 3 — of the "Material" file as defined in the RCC-MRx.
This guide therefore details a method for establishing the data required in part §3 of the "Material" file (experimental results and design curves). It should be noted that for a material to be acceptable in the code, all parts of the "Material" file must be proposed.
The scope of the guide and the interfaces with the different parts of the code, are explained.

Let’s take part in codes update
AFCEN codes continuously improve considering experience feedback of code users. Do you have a question about interpretation of one code paragraph ? Do you propose a code modification ? or you simply want to share with the industry your experience feedback ? The floor is yours. You may download the corresponding form, fill it and then send it to the concerned sub committee who provides answer. Our target is to answer 100% of request within a delay no longer than 3 months.
