    As evidenced in the previous chapters, an extensive literature has developed on the topic of creep behavior of zirconium alloys and the effects of radiation on this behavior. Despite the considerable research which has been performed on this topic, however, a full understanding of creep in these alloys is not yet in hand. This is not to say that creep deformation cannot be considered in core component design, for it can; and many mathematical expressions exist for describing creep rates or creep strains in terms of both material and operating conditions. Yet the fact that so many descriptions of creep exist is a reflection of our limited understanding of creep phenomena in these materials.
