    Abstract

    Programs for improvement in evaluation of damage exposure parameters for irradiation embrittlement in pressure vessel steels are currently under way. Results will be implemented through a series of ASTM standards which will enable radiation damage to be consistently predicted with increased confidence and with well-defined uncertainty trends.
