Application of reactor pressure vessel (RPV) steels with higher strength and toughness might be an effective way to insure the integrity and increase the efficiency of Advanced Pressurized Water Reactors (APWR). This paper introduces the research and development of commercial RPV steel (SA508Gr.3 steel) currently used for PWR pressure vessel construction and higher strength steel (SA508Gr.4N steel) having strong potential for future APWR service in china. Particular emphasis is placed on the comparison of the SA508Gr.3 low alloy steel and SA508Gr.4N low alloy steels, including chemical composition, microstructural features and correlated with mechanical properties and environmental influences on the properties of these steels.
