3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

FAPCO evaluates flaws in structures, especially those detected during in-service inspection of nuclear power plant components. FAPCO determines the end-of-life  flaw size, critical flaw sizes for normal and abnormal reactor operation conditions, and finally determines whether the flaw is acceptable or not for continued service.
