This publication provides the results of a coordinated research project considering best practice and improvements that can be made to the primary water chemistry of nuclear power plants. Corrosion of fuel cladding and primary circuit materials are discussed and experiments investigating how water chemistry can alleviate these concerns are described. Deposition of corrosion products on primary circuit surfaces and their effects on crud induced power shifts and radiation doses are examined and potential alleviation methods are considered.
