    Abstract

    As an initial step in comparing the effects of irradiation in neutron spectrums characteristic of thermal and fast reactors, irradiations to establish the role of temperature on tensile property changes in the thermal reactor spectrum were undertaken. For this purpose specimens of Type 347 stainless steel were irradiated in the ETR at 400 and 650 C to a target fluence of 5×1O21 n/cm2. The results of this irradiation are reported in this paper and are compared with previous results for specimens irradiated to the same fluence at 50 C.
