ASTM International Welcomes Papers for the 25th Symposium on Effects of Radiation on Nuclear Materials
W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., -Papers are invited for the 25th Symposium on Effects of Radiation on Nuclear Materials, to be held June 15-17, 2011, at the Marriott Anaheim in Anaheim, Calif. Sponsored by ASTM International Committee E10 on Nuclear Technology and Applications, the meetings will be held in conjunction with the June 12-15 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. Papers are invited on the following topics:
Effects of radiation on metals, ceramics, polymers, and other materials that will experience service in thermal, fast and fusion reactors;
Study of irradiation effects using charged particles;
Thermo-physical effects on materials intended for irradiation service;
Theory and modeling of radiation effects on materials including experimental validation;
Advanced techniques for the characterization of irradiated materials;
Incorporation of radiation effects in ASME code qualification;
Radiation effects on fuel matrix, especially for advanced fuel forms for burner reactors;
Spent fuel conditioning, dry storage, transportation, aging and waste disposal; and
Accelerated testing, surveillance and systems qualification.
Interested presenters must submit a 250-300 word abstract online at www.astm.org/E10symp611.htm by Aug. 30, 2010. You will be notified by Sept. 30 of your paper's acceptability for presentation. Symposium presenters are required to submit their papers to the Journal of ASTM International (JAI). JAI is an online, peer-reviewed journal for the international scientific and engineering community (www.astm.org/JAI).
