Famous Failures Webinar: Understanding Three Mile Island and Determining Nuclear Reactor Effects on Metals

September 21, 2021 3:08 pm

The Three Mile Island nuclear reactor in Dauphin County, PA partially melted down on March 28, 1979. It was the worst nuclear accident in U.S. history and was a significant turning point in the global development of nuclear power.

Watch this “Famous Failures” webinar from NSL to learn about the accident and how investigators used metallography and mechanical testing to determine the degree of thermal exposure to the lower head of the nuclear reactor at Unit 2 of Three Mile Island. Discover the lessons learned from this accident and the impact on today.
