Press release date: January 22, 2013
The compilation features 17 peer-reviewed papers that focus on the latest research on the effects of radiation on nuclear materials, including:
• Light water reactor sustainability issues and programs that address the multiple challenges of extended reactor life, including detailed coverage of irradiation embrittlement of reactor pressure vessel steels; and
• Synergistic effects of gas atoms (i.e. helium and hydrogen) and displacement damage, with an emphasis on the unprecedented challenge to structural and plasma-facing materials in nuclear fusion reactors.
Sections in STP 1547 cover:
• Reactor pressure vessel steels;
• Synergistic effects of helium and displacement damage;
• Austenitic steels, Ni, Zr, and Al-Mg alloys and polyethylene; and
• Modeling of radiation effects.
