    Abstract

    A theoretical model is presented that is particularly appropriate for a study of void growth kinetics at high neutron doses. These kinetics are presented for peak swelling temperatures where recombination effects can be neglected; their dependence on dislocation density, void density, and dose rate is discussed.
