    STP 1270 features the latest information from the world's leading experts on how radiation impacts a wide range of metals. This extensive volume includes 68 peer-reviewed papers organized into 8 comprehensive categories:

    Modeling of Controlling Mechanisms -- 8 papers explore mechanisms controlling the behavior and process of radiation embrittlement and segregation in reactor pressure vessel steel.

    MicrostructureStudies -- The precipitation process that controls reactor pressure vessel steel embrittlement is discussed in 6 papers.

    Charpy Impact Response -- 14 papers explore such properties topics as the effects of annealing, irradiated welds and specific reactor parts, consequences of flux, and the use of small specimen technology and reconstitution.

    Strength and Toughness Issues -- 11 papers expand the mechanical properties data base on reactor pressure vessel steels.

    Ferritic and Martensitic Steels -- Steels with increased chromium levels for use at higher temperature are examined in 6 papers.

    Austenitic Steels -- 12 papers present topics including microstructural response, fundamentals of radiation damage and mechanical properties.

    Other Materials -- Nickel, aluminum alloys, vanadium and a zirconium alloy are the focus of 7 papers.

    Special Procedures and Techniques -- 4 papers feature procedures for avoiding long term radioactivity and unique methods such as positron measurements and laser extensometry.
