As the article states, cracking in the graphite bricks is predicted and the regulators are happy that the reactor is safe to operate.

Post-doc, JRC-Petten: Microstructural characterisation of materials and mechanical property correlation

The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission,Insitute for Energy (IET), in Petten Nehterlands, is looking for a motivated scientist or engineer at post-doctoral level to work on characterization of primarily metallic materials for nuclear reactors using a combination of techniques such as scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM and TEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), Xray diffraction (XRD), and 3D X-ray tomography.  (see attachment)
