    Abstract

    This paper gives the first results of the interlaboratory exercise, REAL-84. The exercise has as its aim the improvement of the assessment of the accuracy in predictions of radiation damage in steel, in a calculation exercise in which the best available input data and the best available calculation methods are used. In this report the results of 39 solutions from 10 participants, which were received before Feb. 1986, are discussed.
