A Japanese flaw evaluation code for nuclear power plant components has been developed at the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME). The code prescribes methods for the evaluation of flaws, which are detected during inservice inspection for pressure vessels and pipes in nuclear power plants. This paper describes the basic flow chart, methods of evaluation and allowable flaw sizes for acceptance standards and criteria, including comparisons with the ASME Code Section XI. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
