The U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Electric Power Research Institute, cooperating under the auspices of a memorandum of understanding, conducted a double-blind round robin study for prediction of weld residual stress in a full-scale pressurizer surge line mockup. This work is the latest in a series of studies aimed at understanding and reducing uncertainty in the numerical prediction of weld residual stress. The round robin study involved both measurements and modeling. The measurements included deep hole drilling and contour method. Ten international participants submitted finite element modeling results to the study. This paper summarizes the mockup design, the modeling problem statement, and the measurement and modeling results.
