    Abstract

    The irradiation-induced creep and swelling of annealed 16Cr-15Ni-3Mo-Nb stainless steels with different contents of carbon and boron in BOR-60 at 420°C have been investigated to exposures of 100 dpa. Swelling depends on carbon content and boron. The creep rate directly depends on stress and instantaneous swelling rate. The creep-swelling oupling coefficient of austenitic steels does not appear to be very sensitive to microaddition.
