The ASTM International technical publication, STP 1492, Effects of Radiation on Materials: 23rd International Symposium, features 18 peer-reviewed papers focused on the irradiation embrittlement of reactor pressure vessel steels.
This new research provides a broad perspective on the development and application of trend curves used to predict fracture toughness transition temperatures in irradiated reactor pressure vessel steels. Papers cover materials ranging from erbium tritide films to oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) ferritic steels.
STP 1492, Effects of Radiation on Materials: 23rd International Symposium, is available for $74 (237 pages, soft cover, 6” x 9”; ISBN: 978-0-8031-3421-8; stock # STP1492). Contact ASTM Customer Service (phone: 610-832-9585; fax: 610-832-9555; firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit www.astm.org.
