A Bayesian Analysis of Steam Generator Tube Wall Emissivity for Heat Treatment

M. H. Hu

ABSTRACT

This paper develops a probabilistic method for estimating tube wall emissivity of a steam generator. Bayes' theorem combines the generic probability density function (pdf) of tube wall emissivity with specific data. The combination results in a specific pdf of the emissivity for specific steam generator. Estimates of the emissivity provide inputs for probabilistic estimation of tube wall temperature during field heat treatment of steam generator tubes.
