The Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) has a plan of irradiation tests using the Japan Materials Testing Reactor (JMTR), in order to evaluate the effects of change in material properties and water chemistry caused by the neutron/$$gamma$$-ray irradiation on stress corrosion crack (SCC) growth of stainless steels from the view points of the integrity of reactor core internals for boiling water reactors (BWRs). The difference of SCC growth and its electrochemical corrosion potential (ECP) dependence between in-pile and out-of-pile tests is not fully understood because of a few in-pile data which is comparable with out-of-pile database. This paper presents a systematic review on SCC growth data of irradiated stainless steels and the outline of the in-pile test plan for crack growth of irradiated SUS316L stainless steel under simulated BWR conditions in the JMTR, together with the development of the in-pile test techniques.
