Symposium addresses effects of radiation on nuclear materials.

Press Release Summary:

April 8, 2011 - Scheduled for June 15-17, 25th Symposium on Effects of Radiation on Nuclear Materials will provide forum for exchange of ideas on recent research results on radiation effects in the materials for nuclear fission and fusion applications. There will be special emphasis on understanding gained from combinations of state-of-the art experiments and modeling. Applications include extended life for light water reactors and development of new materials that can manage high levels of radiation damage.

ASTM International 25th Symposium on Effects of Radiation on Nuclear Materials

Press release date: April 5, 2011

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., - The 25th Symposium on Effects of Radiation on Nuclear Materials will be held June 15-17 at the Marriott Anaheim in Anaheim, Calif. Sponsored by ASTM International Committee E10 on Nuclear Technology and Applications, the symposium will be held in conjunction with the June standards development meetings of the committee. The objective of the symposium is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on the recent research results on radiation effects in the materials for nuclear fission and fusion applications. There will be special emphasis on understanding gained from combinations of state-of-the art experiments and modeling. Applications include extended life for light water reactors, development of new materials that can manage high levels of radiation damage and transmutation helium in fusion reactors and damage tolerant materials that permit extended burn-up and long component lifetimes in future fission reactors. Online registration opens approximately eight weeks before the workshop and closes June 8. The fees to attend the workshop are as follows: ASTM members, presenters and session chairs: $500 USD for online registration and $525 USD for onsite registration; non-ASTM members: $525 USD for online registration and $550 USD for onsite registration. There is no fee for students with a valid ID. For more information and to register, visit www.astm.org/E10symp0611.htm. Additional information is available from symposium chairman Takuya Yamamoto, Ph.D., University of California - Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, Calif. (phone: 805-893-3848; yamataku@engineering.ucsb.edu); or co-chairs Mikhail A. Sokolov, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tenn. (phone: 865-574-4842; sokolovm@ornl.gov); or Brady Hanson, Battelle Memorial Institute, Richland, Wash. (phone: 509-376-3760; brady.hanson@pnl.gov). ASTM International is one of the largest international standards development and delivery systems in the world. ASTM International meets the World Trade Organization (WTO) principles for the development of international standards: coherence, consensus, development dimension, effectiveness, impartiality, openness, relevance and transparency. ASTM standards are accepted and used in research and development, product testing, quality systems and commercial transactions.
