    Abstract

    In-reactor measurement technology has advanced to the point where experimental programs are routinely testing hundreds of creep specimens. These specimens include numerous developmental as well as commercial alloys. The tests encompass the operating temperatures, pressures, stresses, and neutron fluences in liquid metal fast breeder reactor cores. This report describes the test vehicles and the measurement techniques used to generate the data.
